Going out
The decisions we make as we go about our daily activities are very important in reducing the spread of COVID-19.

Before going out, consider:
• Your personal risk and household members risk factors
• The risk created by a setting or activity

Think about the risks associated with different settings and activities.

Minimize your risk by avoiding the 3 Cs:
closed spaces with poor ventilation
crowded places with many people nearby
close faces, such as close-range conversations

Take action to reduce the spread of COVID-19:
1. Stay home & get tested if you have symptoms.
2. Follow public health practices: physical distancing, handwashing, wearing a face covering/mask.
3. Limit time spent in settings that might increase risk.

Face Coverings and Masks
Wearing a mask or face covering will be required in enclosed public spaces beginning July 20, 2020 under City of Hamilton By-Law 20-155. Learn more about the by-law.
