Focus on Health – Understanding Your Social Circles, Social Gatherings and More!

What’s the difference between a Social Circle and a Social Gathering?

The province now allows people to create ‘social circles’ that include up to 10 people who all belong to the same circle together. These 10 people can come into close contact with each other without having to maintain physical distancing measures.

To form a safe ‘social circle’ start with people you live with or who regularly come into your household. Do not exceed 10 people.

Everyone in the social circle should only belong to one circle.

A ‘social gathering’ is everyone else that you meet acquaintances and otherwise that are not of the ‘10’ in your circle. Take comfort in knowing that the size of this ’gathering’ has expanded to 10 people AND all physical distancing rules still apply

Is it safe to use public washrooms?

Yes, but follow the below guidelines to remain safe

Stay 2 metres from others.

Wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds, or use alcohol based hand sanitizer for 15 seconds.

Flush toilet with the lid down.

Use paper towels instead of a hand dryer, where possible. Use a paper towel to turn off the faucet and open the door.

If using a baby change table, wipe down with a disinfecting wipe before and after use.

Here is a direct excerpt from Chatelaine Magazine

What if you regularly visit a healthcare practitioner, like a chiropractor? Does that mean, by default, that they’re in your circle?

This shouldn’t be a problem, especially with medical professionals. According to Chagla, “most regulated healthcare professionals are wearing their own masks. It’s a relatively low-risk interaction.” In other words, they aren’t in your circle

Essential workers can be part of a social circle, so long as the other members are aware of the risks and agree to them.
