As the economy begins to re-open, many Canadians are wondering what measures they can take to protect themselves from COVID-19 in public settings.
According to the government of Canada, when combined with other preventative measures, personal protective equipment (PPE) can be an additional precaution to protect others around you, even if you have no symptoms. It can be useful for short periods of time, when physical distancing is not possible in public settings, such as grocery shopping or using public transit.
Note: PPE should not be used in replacement of the recommended best practices, including but not limited to proper hand hygiene, physical distancing and sanitization.
