With COVID-19 spreading rapidly, we need to be careful with ourselves and the people around us. While there is no reason to panic, we should be prepared with all the information at hand in case we need it. One of the main things to know is the nearest COVID-19 testing centres and who to call if you think you or someone you know is showing symptoms.
