The coro­n­avirus task group not­ed that mass expo­sures that could have led to exten­sive quar­an­tines and to a large num­ber of coro­n­avirus cas­es have been avoid­ed in the region thanks to con­sci­en­tious use of face masks. Face masks pre­vent the coro­n­avirus from spread­ing. Thank you for using a face mask and for prac­tis­ing good hand hygiene!

It is impor­tant to get test­ed even if one only has mild symptoms!
