“We have to everyday stress on the personal responsibilities of the hand washing, the distancing, the facemasks wearing, and using the vaccines and boosters as much as we can. No way, no how, I think looking back at what we have learnt from the past two years I think any lockdown make sense. So we shouldn’t even start a conversation about lockdown. Let the kids continue in school. We have been fairly good so far. Still expect yes that we will have lots of cases. I bet you Paul that we will be talking about COVID in 2023. It will not go away. We have to live with it and hopefully protect ourselves by the boosters and vaccines.”
