Anyone with respiratory symptoms like cough, fever, shortness of breath, sore throat should not be at work, socializing or in any public place. It is important that people who are unwell seek care promptly at the closest Community Respiratory Clinic.


The Ministry of Health once more reminds everyone to:

  • wash and sanitize hands often throughout the day
  • always wear a mask while in public
  • maintain a separation of six feet from others while on public, which is about two arm’s
    length apart
