Protect our elders! Most of those being hospitalized and dying from COVID these days are people over 65. As a community that honors and embraces the strength of the family, we want to move through 2023 doing all we can to keep our families and community safe from serious illness, hospitalizations, and deaths due to COVID, the flu or RSV infections. Don’t host or attend a gathering if you are feeling sick or have symptoms that could be cold, flu or COVID. Stay home and isolate until you know for sure that you are not infectious. A test can give you the answers you need.

Basic Protective Measures Against the New Coronavirus
Stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak, available on the WHO website and through your national and local public health authority. Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others. Take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:
Maintain social distancing. Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus.
