Do you have a COVID PACT?

We hit up some workshops, social zooms, and a few other lounge events in rez to come up with this COVID PACT.

Being aware and making responsible choices when you are drinking alcohol – is just plain hard.

Alcohol can impair your judgment, so you need to get the facts before you start drinking.

Do not worry - we are here to help!

Let us guide you and share as many tips, tools, and tricks as we can. If you are a student living on or off-campus you should have a COVID PACT.


Recipe: Mix Public Health with #DrinkSmartTIPS


Ingredients:

P – Plan your night. Stay home if you are not feeling well. Think about who you are going with, how you will get to/from, and where you are going. Don’t forget to wear a mask and practice social distancing.

A – Alternate your drinks with water and do not forget to eat before and while you are drinking. Avoid sharing cups and drinks.

C – Count. Track the number of drinks you consume and always pour them yourself when possible. Take your drink with you to the washroom and wash your hands.

T – Time matters. Limit yourself to 1 drink every 60-90 minutes. This will give your body a chance to process the alcohol. Remember to distance your drinks and yourselves.

These 4 tips can help you have fun but stay safe. Do not let anyone influence how much alcohol you consume. It is your body. Your choice.

We are all in this together.

Don’t let your drinking do your thinking®
