"If you are planning on voting in person, do not forget to give others the space to stay safe when going to vote, wash your hands before and after voting, and consider using a mask if distancing is a challenge", the pair said.

Dr. Henry adds 9,016 tests were conducted in the past day, making for a positive-test percentage of 1.57 per cent.
