To prevent the spread of the virus, experts recommend washing your hands frequently and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with other people, staying at home as much as possible, and maintaining a distance of two meters from other people if you go outside. In situations where you cannot keep a safe distance from others, health officials recommend using a non-medical face mask or covering to prevent the spread of respiratory droplets that can carry the virus. In some provinces and municipalities across the country, masks or face coverings are now mandatory in enclosed public places.
