Community Hot Spots

Unlike the peak, when the country was still in a hard lockdown, there is far more mobility under the current alert level, which means the risk of transmission is greater, and not limited to the suburbs that are experiencing a surge in caseload.

Our healthcare overflow facilities and mobile testing booths remain active; and we stand ready to assist you with COVID-19 screenings, testings and referrals, as well as contact tracing.
