This guidance tool, useful for both SBC professionals and the public, reviews important information one should consider before deciding to resume all, or some, of normal activities.

As communities and businesses are opening, people may be looking for ways to resume some daily activities as safely as possible. While there is no way to ensure zero risk of infection, it is important to understand potential risks and how to adopt different types of prevention measures to protect yourself and to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Of course, if one has COVID-19, has symptoms consistent with COVID-19, or has been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, it is important to stay home and away from other people. When one leaves home and begins to be around others depends on different factors for different situations.  

In general, the more closely you interact with others and the longer that interaction, the higher the risk of COVID-19 spread.
