However, sexual activity with new partners does increase the risk of falling ill with the virus, particularly if there is close contact. Dr Theresa Tam, Chief Public Health Officer of Canada, recommends no kissing and wearing a mask to prevent the spread of respiratory droplets.

While 'the lowest risk sexual activity during COVID involves yourself alone' there are steps people can take to stay safe. Tam says the most important step is to make sure people have a trusting relationship with their sexual partners. She says risk can be reduced by wearing a mask that covers the mouth and nose, avoiding face-to-face closeness and no kissing.
