You may have peeked at the news of the new variants appearing in some schools in the Lower Mainland. As I started writing, two more schools have been added to the exposure list for the U.K. variant, bringing the total number to five.

We are told there are ways to reduce the risk and generally improve our state of health. Eating healthy and getting daily exercise, washing hands and airing out properly so fresh air can reduce the number of disease-causing particles.

Weekly column: With cases growing, we need to change our strategy

If you have kids, you’ve likely been through a case or two of ‘are we there yet?’ and like all parents who are presented with the question, you probably answered ‘almost there…’ knowing that it’ll be a while yet.

Somehow it feels that way with the ongoing pandemic. Last week alone we saw multiple cases show up in our schools and we have the hospital outbreak. As of Sunday, there were 28 patients and 51 staff who tested positive at RIH (update: there are now 91 people affected, staff and patients.)
