Henry spoke to the importance of keeping schools open, but celebrating smart.

"Look to celebrate in smaller and safer ways," says Henry.

"While some recommendations change - the minimal orders are our steady guideposts. These are the basic individual steps. Cleaning our hands, cover our cough, keep a safe distance from strangers or new people, especially indoors," she added.

"We knew we would face an increase as we turn indoors. The greatest impact you can make are the small ones - keeping to your same safe six and following safety basics. Fewer faces makes for safer spaces."
