Canada’s chief public health officer has recommended couples refrain from kissing and to wear masks during sex to prevent further spread of the coronavirus.

“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,” Theresa Tam said Wednesday in a statement, Agence-France Presse reported. “The lowest risk sexual activity during COVID-19 involves yourself alone.”

Tam also urged condom use, saying there is a “very low likelihood” of transmission of the novel coronavirus through seminal or vaginal fluids.
