  1. Stick to either sides of the sidewalk if possible, by taking up the middle, you are leaving little chances for others to pass safely
  2. Walking with your partner or kids? Try your best to walk behind each other or as close to each other as possible to give others a fighting chance of passing you safely. Please don’t hold hands and take up the entire sidewalk.
  3. Try not to be glued to your phone, paying attention is more important than ever.
  4. If you are on a bike, please get off the sidewalk
  5. Don’t spit while walking!
  6. If you see a person with vision loss, don’t be afraid to help with some directions.
  7. If you encounter someone with a stroller or mobility device, make space. They wont go on the road
  8. If you are stopping to have a ‘distanced’ chat with a friend or loved one, please do not do it on the sidewalk, literally pick anywhere else.
  9. If you are sick and have to leave your home, please wear a mask.
