Keep It Close to Home this Family Day Week
Keeping COVID-19 transmission low means building best public health practices into all your plans this Family Day week. Take the opportunity to get outdoors for your physical and mental health, even if it means that extra layer of long underwear.
- Stay safe this Family Day week by keeping your plans within your immediate household.
- If you are headed outdoors, you may gather in groups of ten with two metres of physical distancing between household groups. Food should not be shared between non-household members.
- Stay close to home. Non-essential travel is not recommended at this time. Travel outside our borders means you will be subject to the public health requirements for that jurisdiction, including mandatory quarantine upon return from any international destination.
