However, there are still steps you can take to reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19, including:
letting fresh air in if meeting indoors, or meet outside
considering wearing a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces
getting tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms, and stay at home if positive
