What I do today as a responsible person
I wish to continue having the freedom to do more versus just being confined to home. Icontinue to remind myself that it’s my responsibility to continue doing al the necessary to keep this number down. There is no need to go into that restaurant if it’s just too full of people. There’s no need to expose the kids to the risk that they could be infected.
Keep on reminding and ensuring they wear their small masks properly. In the mean time, I think we are moving towards the direction of endemic. Thank you for your efforts too.
