Driving in cars with others

Cars are being treated as though they are a household. You can travel with those in your household and friendship circle.

But we do recognize that there are cases where sharing transportation outside your household and friendship circle must happen. Some examples might be:

  • A disabled family member or friend needs to be driven to a medical appointment,
  • Your dad is moving to a different house and needs some help moving his things
  • Your friend got stranded because their car’s broken down, and nobody in their household can help
  • Your sister is moving to another community and needs a ride there

The main purpose of the order is to reduce socializing to slow the spread, not to shut down anyone’s lives or inconvenience people who may depend on others.

Note: Sharing a ride is a risk and should only be done if absolutely necessary

  • Both people in the vehicle should practice physical distancing, both should wear face coverings, and both should practice hand hygiene after exiting the vehicle.
