"If cases continue to rise we will see an inevitable increase in the number of people hospitalised.

"We all have a role to play in preventing that from happening.

"Do not drop your guard just because you are meeting people close to you.

"Remember that just because somebody looks and feels well, that does not mean they are COVID free."
