"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 said.

If you're hooking up with people or are planning to, there are some things you should consider.

First and foremost, Dr. Tam recommends doing it by yourself because it has the lowest risk. That could mean masturbating or getting it on virtually.

Though she also has tips on how to have sex safely in person.

Most importantly, you should trust the person you're hooking up with.

Monitoring yourself for COVID-19 symptoms is also a good idea. If you or your partner has any symptoms, you shouldn't get intimate.

Dr. Tam said that limiting your alcohol intake can help you make safe decisions.

She also recommends that you skip kissing and any face-to-face contact or closeness.

You could even wear a mask to be extra safe.

Another tip is being aware of whether you or your partner are at a higher risk of getting COVID-19.

Plus, Dr. Tam said to keep up the usual safe sex practices like using condoms.

If you're getting busy with a new person in your life, it's important to keep your number of close contacts as low as possible because even if someone doesn't have symptoms, there's still a risk of getting the virus.

Dr. Tam said that taking these precautions, Canadians can still be physically intimate while not ruining all the progress we've made to slow the spread.

The B.C. Centre for Disease Control also has guidelines for safe sex and it includes using glory holes.

Dr. Bonnie Henry, B.C.'s Provincial Health Officer, put out a "Good Times Guide" and she wants you to skip getting it on with someone who has symptoms.
