The need to scale back on our public exposures and to limit our circles from those outside of our social bubbles was reinforced as part of todays information statement; with Dr. Bonnie Henry observing on the upcoming colder weather and how it will make for more time indoors where more risk may be found.
“Today, we are announcing 96 new cases, including seven epi-linked cases, for a total of 8,304 cases in British Columbia.
With today marking the start of Fall, Dr. Henry turned our attention to the need to reel in our social activity and add to the layers of protection for our families as we head into the flu and other respiratory issues of the upcoming seasons.
“The start of fall is the time for all of us to regroup and reset our COVID-19 routines, and ready ourselves for the colder, wetter months ahead.
As we move inside, the activities we choose to do and the layers of protection we use need to be adjusted to ensure we are protecting ourselves, our friends and family – especially those who are most vulnerable to severe illness.
This means spending less time with others outside of our household bubble right now. “We need to push our COVID-19 curve back down and keep the virus low and slow, so we can manage the many challenges that will come with the respiratory season.”
