Covid 19

HELP PREVENT THE SPREAD OF

COVID -19

Steps you can take
To protect yourself and others:
practice social distancing
stay home and away from others if sick or in isolation
wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your elbow
avoid touching your face with unwashed hands
avoid travel outside Canada
Self-isolate for 14 days if you:
 recently returned from travel outside of Canada
 have a cough, fever, fatigue and/or difficulty breathing
 are a close contact of someone who has tested positive for
COVID-19
 have been asked by a health care professional for another reason
Monitor your symptoms
If you have symptoms, like a dry cough, fever, fatigue or difficulty breathing
• stay home - do not go to an ER or clinic
• take the COVID-19 self-assessment
• call Health Link 811 for instructions and testing
Practice social distancing
Social distancing involves taking steps to limit the number of people you come
into close contact with. It can help you reduce the risk of getting sick.
This is not the same as self-isolation. You do not need to remain indoors, but
you do need to avoid being in close contact with people.
We are asking all Albertans to practice social distancing to help protect
themselves and limit the spread of COVID-19.
To protect yourself and others:
• keep at least 6 feet (the length of a bicycle) from others when going out
for groceries, medical trips and other essential needs
• limit the number of times you leave your home for errands
• try to shop at less busy times
• order online to have groceries or other items delivered if possible
• go for a walk in your neighborhood or park while maintaining distance
from others
• avoid overcrowding in elevators or other enclosed spaces
• follow Alberta’s recommendations on mass gatherings
• wash or sanitize your hands after touching communal surfaces
