Plus le niveau de risque est élevé, plus une personne est susceptible de contracter le virus, c’est pourquoi on doit limiter nos contacts. pic.twitter.com/kxHM5tOgmx— Christian Dubé (@cdube_sante) October 30, 2020\n\n\nWhat represents a high risk, according to the government, is any direct contact with a person infected with COVID-19.\nThis includes people living in the same household as a coronavirus-positive person, a person providing physical care, and close contact without a mask.\nThe moderate level includes contact within two metres and prolonged contact, such as on public transportation, with someone who has not followed the health measures in place.\nProlonged contact lasts 15 minutes consecutively or cumulatively.\nAs for the low level, it is quite simple: the person has had no contact with a "covidian."\nIf in doubt, the federal COVID Alert application will tell you if you've been within two metres of an infected person.\n\n\nThis article was originally published in French on Narcity Québec.
