In the meantime, the Government will be raising its Covid testing, contract tracing and vaccinations. Many different tests have been made available for cheaper, so more routine testing can be done. Contact tracing also will be done more quickly and widely. Vaccination delivery will be sped up over the next two months. Everyone is encouraged to get vaccinated, especially the elderly. 

This is the new normal and we must do our part to keep everyone safe!
