Minister of Health, Kim Wilson, JP, MP, reminded, “The coronavirus continues to be very prevalent in our community. It’s easy to become complacent, but we must remain vigilant. Numbers are rising in positive cases in various sectors of our community, and we must remain cautious. There are various COVID strands circulating, and we are seeing cases where individuals are being infected with the coronavirus more than once in a short period of time. In that regard, I am urging individuals to please continue to follow public health guidance; wear a mask when in large group settings; physically distance, and practice good hand hygiene. If you’re feeling unwell, please stay home. And above all, if you test positive, please stay home.”
