He said: “Regular signal testing is also easier than ever. You can order tests online, take them from almost any pharmacy in the city, or take a test near you.

The quickest way to find out without symptoms is to find a way to quickly spread the word to your family, co-workers and classmates.

For those who show signs, please do not use a quick test – you will need to have a PCR test.

There is a lot of experimental capacity in the city and the results will return quickly.

“I know that isolation is not easy for anyone who is positive or close, but it is very important that everyone who is important stays home for 10 days.
