Staying alert and safe
COVID-19 has not gone away, so it's important to remember the actions you can take to keep yourself and others safe.
The best way to stop the spread of the virus is to follow the guidelines (hands, face, space and fresh air), get vaccinated, and take up the offer of regular testing.
