Member for Nepean, Chris Brayne, would like to thank the community for following the rules during these difficult times and getting tested.

“Remember, if you have the slightest of symptoms, get tested.”

“If we continue to social distance, wear a mask, and get tested when we feel unwell, we will beat this virus.”
