Welcome to Coronavirus Insights & Updates, a new call-in series, allowing you to get closer to the stories, and hear the latest developments from our experts.

In the latest talk, the Globe’s health columnist André Picard and deputy national editor Nicole MacIntyre discussed how to live during a pandemic, and answered reader questions including the highly-requested query, “Who can go for a walk?”

And Andre’s answer to the question of who can go for a walk.

Anyone can go for a walk who:

  • Has not been diagnosed with COVID-19;
  • Does not have symptoms of COVID-19;
  • Has not travelled outside of Canada in the past 14 days.

That means most people can go out for a walk, but they should not congregate and they should practise social distancing by keeping at least two metres from others.

But the official advice is also stay at home as much as possible.

André Picard answered some of the most common (and occasionally obscure) questions.

The rules are changing. Andre Picard answer reader questions about self-isolation, social distancing and quarantine.
