With the numbers reported still alarmingly high, Dr. Bonnie Henry reinforced the need to follow the guidance of the recent weeks closely to try to reverse the speed of the reports of COVID that we have seen in recent months.
“We’re in a very challenging time of the COVID-19 pandemic and we are asking for everyone’s help to slow the spread of the virus in our province.
As we have seen, this virus doesn’t pause when we are tired and doesn’t wait for us to catch up.
This means that right now, we all need slow down our social interactions and increase our layers of protection to get over this next hurdle together. Over the next two weeks, we need to reduce the level of transmission in our province to relieve the stress on our health-care system and keep our schools and workplaces open.
It is about putting our social gatherings with anyone outside of our immediate household on hold and only doing those things that are essential and safe right now.
We’re asking you to put the safety measures at the top of your list and focus on making a difference, rather than thinking about shortcuts or workarounds."
