“As restrictions are lifted and people move about more, it’s important that we use the tools that have helped us suppress the virus to date.
“Hand washing, physical distancing, cough/sneeze hygiene and wearing face coverings are important personal behaviours that mean, as we go about our daily lives, that we are doing everything we can to avoid contracting the virus and spreading it to those we love.”
