Remember that every outing is a low risk exposure and you need to follow public health measures correctly each and every time you leave your house. This includes times when you pick up items curbside.
Stay home and self-isolate if:
If you think you may have COVID-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has it, first self-isolate and complete the on-line COVID-19 Self-Assessment to determine your next steps.
