AUSTIN, Texas (KWTX) - The Texas Medical Association released a chart Monday, that assigned risks of catching COVID-19 to everyday tasks.

The chart ranges from things like pumping gas or getting takeout, which are considered low risk, to things like working out in a gym and going to a bar, which are on the high end.

Doctor John Carlo with the Texas Medical Association told Dallas radio station WBAP that they created the chart based on what they know now about Coronavirus.

“It’s based on what we think we know about how Coronavirus transmission is occurring,” Carlo said.
