How We’ll Keep Transmission Low
What the New Normal Means for You
B.C.’s progress in the fight against COVID-19 is a direct result of the sacrifices and decisions that we have all made. To continue to protect seniors and ‘at risk’ people and ensure that our health care system can respond to this dangerous virus, means that we all have to keep doing our part – at home, in the community and at work.
Stay at home and keep a safe distance from family when you have cold or flu symptoms, including: Coughing, sneezing, runny nose, sore throat, fatigue and/or fever.
Enjoy your small group gatherings but meet outside or in bigger spaces. Continue to be mindful of no handshaking or hugs outside of your family. Air hugs only.
Practice good hygiene including: Regular hand washing, avoid touching your face, coughing and sneezing into your elbow, disinfecting frequently touched surfaces.
Keep physical distancing as much as possible when in the community and where not possible, please use a non-medical mask or face covering.
During this phase 2, BC government are asking people to stay close to home and avoid any travel between communities that is not essential.
