Staying safe during the second wave.
Help Stop the Spread
COVID-19is spread mainly from person to person through close physical contact. These everyday actions remain the best line of defence in helping to reduce exposure to the virus and protecting your health:
Wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
Sneeze and cough into your sleeve
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
Avoid contact with people who are sick
Stay home and away from others if you are feeling sick, even if you have mild symptoms. If you have symptoms or think you have been exposed to COVID-19, get tested
Practice physical distancing – stay home as much as possible and limit outings, and stay at least two metres away from anyone you do not live with or is outside of your social circle
Wear a face covering where required or when physical distancing of two metres is not possible
Ensure you are keeping to the public and private gathering limits (indoor and outdoor)
