Numbers are still high; especially compared to one year ago.

Stay home, wear masks when you must go out.

Stay out of bars, restaurants and other poorly ventilated areas.

Another wave is coming soon; probably in 3-4 weeks, following the pattern of the last 2 years.

Think of others and stay safe!

Numbers are pretty low.

Dont stay home and dont bother with your mask when going out.

Find your local tavern or izakaya and have yourself a ball with your friends and family.

Another wave is not coming, so continue to live your lives!

Get outside and enjoy the weather everyone, it’s ruddy wonderful this time of year. The numbers show that there is no need for concern unless a more deadly Variant mysteriously appears from a lab or a city with a lab in it, like last time.

some are still afraid, fair enough, you are free to act in your own judgements, but you are missing out on life.

Covid is here to stay, this virus is not going anywhere. The only way we will get control of it is take off the mask and everyone become exposed. This is the only way we can become immune to it. If we keep covering up and blocking it and then take off the mask it comes back in a different form we just have to let out natural bodies fight this virus off. Ok I am not a doctor but think about it, before we knew about this virus we had no problems the more the mask went on the cases rose, before the virus even though it had been around the cases were low. Thunk about it!
