The PHU is reminding everyone to follow all public health measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The safest options are to limit close contact to your own household members, stay home and do not attend work or school when ill, avoid non-essential travel, and remember to practise physical distancing, wear your mask, wash your hands and get vaccinated. Before leaving your home, continue to screen yourself for symptoms and practise COVID-safe behaviours.
