In the meantime, and as we wait for the vaccine to arrive, we must all continue to practice the 3W’s (Wear, Wait, and Wash), anytime we leave our homes. Currently, the 3Ws are the best tools we have to prevent the spread of COVID19 until the vaccine arrives and our bodies have a sufficient amount of time to create a natural immunity.
