What is physical distancing?


A graphic shows two people 2 metres or 6 feet apart.
Practise physical distancing to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

Social distancing is a way that we can slow the spread of COVID-19 by limiting close contact with others. Even though we are not sick, we should still keep about two meters (six feet) or the length of a queen-sized bed from one another when we can when outside our homes.

The BCCDC has more information about slowing the spread of COVID-19.
