- Stay home for at least 10 days if you have any symptoms of illness. After 10 days, if your temperature is normal and you feel better, you can return to your routine activities. Coughing may persist for several weeks, so a cough alone does not mean you need to continue to self-isolate for more than 10 days.
- Stay at least two metres (over six feet) away from other people outside your household.
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds.
- Avoid touching your face.
