"Given that our rates are so high it's also important that we all continue to take the everyday precautions that will allow us to live safely alongside Covid and keep life moving by following the guidance around testing and self-isolation as well as the simple things we have all been doing for so long such as regular hand washing and letting the fresh air in because we know that these work.
