Keeping safe in Alert Level 1

If you’re sick, stay home. If you have cold or flu symptoms call your doctor or Healthline for advice. Wash your hands regularly with soap.

Sneeze and cough into your elbow, and regularly disinfect shared surfaces.

Keep track of where you’ve been and who you’ve seen to help contact tracing if needed. Stay vigilant. Whatever you’re feeling — it’s okay. Be kind to others. Be kind to yourself.
