To stay healthy and to protect ourselves and others, we must be mindful of the ever-present risk of exposure to the virus. Some settings and situations increase the risk, such as being in:
- closed spaces with poor ventilation
- crowded places where a large number of people gather
- close contact where you can’t keep 2 metres apart from others
