What you can do

– Social distancing remains critical to halting the spread of COVID-19. Keep a lot of distance between yourself and others.

– Wearing a mask or face covering can greatly reduce the risk of transmitting COVID-19 to others. Wearing a mask is highly recommended when in public places with others around you.

Most people spread COVID-19 I do not know they are infected.

– Remind others that precaution remains essential, and lead by example in your actions.
