Those at risk include older adults and those with severe chronic medical conditions such as heart, lung, or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact the public health authorities.

To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend constantly washing your hands and coughing. They recommend reducing contact with others, staying at home as much as possible, and maintaining a distance of two meters from other people when going out.

In some provinces and municipalities around the country, mask or face covering is mandatory in indoor public spaces.
