COVID-19 Risk Guidance

For all risk levels, we strongly recommend:

  • Be vaccinated against COVID-19 with all doses you are eligible for (3 doses for most people over 12 years of age).
  • Monitor for symptoms, seek testing/treatment as you are eligible for and stay home if you are sick.
  • Be respectful of the risk tolerance of those around you. When someone may have a lower risk tolerance due to their personal preference or risk factors for severe COVID-19 we recommend the lower risk tolerance be respected (e.g. asking or by wearing your mask).
