“Let’s stay safe over the weekend”

Over this coming weekend, let’s continue to stay safe and take the necessary measures to protect ourselves and our loved ones from transmitting or becoming infected with COVID-19.

We can do this by continuing to wear our masks correctly, sanitising and washing our hands regularly, as well as maintaining a safe social distance.

It is also important that we avoid the 3 Cs which include crowded places, confined spaces where there is poor ventilation and close contact. It is also important that we all keep our gatherings small, short, well-distanced and outside.
