For all you singles out there, some advice on dating during a pandemic from Canada's top doctor.

Doctor Theresa Tam put out a statement yesterday on how to be intimate but keep yourself safe at the same time.

Tam acknowledging  "sex can be complicated in the time of COVID-19, especially for those without an intimate partner in their household or whose sexual partner is at higher risk for COVID-19.”

She suggests Canadians limit their use of alcohol or substances that might make a couple make unsafe decisions around sex, and that they make sure they are aware of whether their partner is at a high risk of COVID-19.

She also recommends couples skip kissing and avoid “face-to-face contact or closeness” during sex, or “consider using a mask that covers the nose and mouth.”
