Help reduce the spread of COVID-19 (multilingual)

Take steps to reduce the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19):

  • Follow the advice of your local public health authority.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Try not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick and practice physical distancing.
  • Cough and sneeze into your sleeve and not your hands.
  • Stay home as much as possible and if you need to leave the house practice physical distancing (approximately 2m).


Symptoms of COVID-19 can:

  • Take up to 14 days to appear after exposure to the virus.
  • Be very mild or more serious.
  • Vary from person to person.

If you have symptoms

  • Isolate at home to avoid spreading illness to others.
  • Avoid visits with older adults, or those with medical conditions. They are at higher risk of developing serious illness.
  • Call ahead before you visit a health care professional or call your local public health authority.
  • If your symptoms get worse, contact your health care provider or public health authority right away, and follow their instructions.
