The Texas Medical Association released a new chart to break down the risk of contracting COVID-19 with certain activities.

The 'Know Your Risk' chart ranks common activities on a scale of 1 to 9. One indicates low risk, such as pumping gasoline or getting restaurant takeout.

Grocery shopping, having dinner at someone else's house and swimming in a public pool are considered moderate risks.

Going to a hair salon or barbershop, traveling by plane, working out at a gym and going to a bar all range within the Moderate-High to High risk category.

The rankings were evaluated by physicians from the Texas Medical Association's COVID-19 Task Force and Committee on Infectious Diseases.
