Is this analogy too …. cheesy? 😂 

Each little step you take to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 makes a difference!

Think of them each like a layer of Swiss cheese 🧀 — effective, but not perfect. Just like any superhero or slice of Swiss cheese, each safety measure has a weakness.

BUT if we layer in enough “safeguards” to every activity (eg. wear our masks, keep more than 2m away, wash our hands, stay home if we feel at all unwell), we can build a thick enough protection to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.

If we skip those layers, our defence system will have too many “holes” to keep us and those around us safe.

Some of these layers are things we can directly control, others are shared responsibilities we have to do together.

But since risk is additive and spread is exponential, every step we take makes a difference.

Plus who doesn’t like extra layers of 🧀!
