More Tips from Around the Water Cooler
"This virus is not disappearing. It has now become part of our daily lives. It will still be here in three years and we have to find a way to live with it. However, it is really important to stop superspreading events where many people gather together as those can cause large outbreaks. We know that social distancing, not gathering in big groups and covering your face can have a profound impact on the infection. These are simple measures that can help stop the spread if you have large levels of infection."
