Social distancing

Self-isolation at home

As we adjust to living safely with COVID-19, you and your family may need to isolate at home.

Here are a few tips to ensure you are prepared:

  • Prepare yourself and others by making alternative arrangements for people or pets that rely on you for care.
  • Talk to family, friends, and neighbours in advance about how you can support each other if one household must isolate
  • Make sure you have a few days supply of essential foods and items such as painkillers, prescription medicines, tissues and nappies
  • Plan how you would get supplies once in isolation by understanding online supermarket shopping or finding someone who can help you with this.
