Remember to stick to your social circle of 10 & stay at least 2m from others. A COVID-19 test is only a snapshot of your health on the specific date & time the test was taken. You can still get infected after your test was taken & pass the virus to others. https://t.co/UPYQzhrNKr pic.twitter.com/ILGRJ1t169
