Slow and steady is what we need with COVID-19 and it is how we will get through this second wave. The efforts we make each day make a difference.
“Let’s support our public health teams, which are tirelessly working to track the virus, break the chain of transmission and keep all of us safe. The best way to do that is for each of us to keep to as few faces as possible right now.
“Exposures and transmission can happen anywhere. By paying attention to the places we go and the people we see, we can help contact tracers contain the further spread if that does occur.
“Even though we may be staying small right now, that doesn’t stop us from staying connected and staying active. You can go outside, try a local restaurant you haven’t been to before with your family or connect with friends virtually.
“Let’s focus on our health and well-being by taking care of each other and ourselves, and doing all we can to protect our communities and each other.”
