With temperatures rising, restrictions have been changing to allow for more shops to open up and restaurants to have higher capacities. We are all ready to embrace a healthy life this summer. Many people have started to dismiss advisories that request people wear masks and continue to maintain a distance, while many are concerned that this could kick-start a new wave. But what is the updated risk?
While the daily average of confirmed cases is getting consistently lower throughout Canada and many other parts of the world, the risk of covid-19 is still present almost everywhere.
