In addition to basic hygiene measures, physical distancing is paramount to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Physical distancing is:
- Staying home as much as possible
- Maintaining a distance of two (2) meters between people at least.
- Avoiding indoor and outdoor gatherings
- Avoiding direct contact for greetings, such as handshakes, and use alternative practices.
It is important to follow these guidelines in all public places, including parks. Everyone has a role to play in the fight against the spread of COVID-19.
To facilitate the application of physical distancing measures the City of Westmount has restricted certain streets to local traffic only. Cyclists and motorists are invited to respect this new measure and share the traffic lanes.
