- COVID-19 in Edmonton
COVID-19 is spread "mainly by coughing, sneezing or direct contact with a sick person or with surfaces they have recently touched," Alberta Health Services says
. If you are walking alone, there is no problem at all. If you are with people, maintain a distance of two metres.
"There is no danger if someone who is self-isolating goes for a walk outside and stays 2 metres away from others," tweeted Dr. Deena Hinshaw
, Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health. "Going outside and being active should be encouraged." Both she and Mayor Don Iveson
have also cautioned walkers and runners to still keep their distance from each other and not bunch up on, for example, the stairs near the Royal Glenora Club.
