  • The goal is to lift restrictions only when justified
  • We have achieved goal of reversing virus infection trend
  • We have stopped health system from being overburdened
  • But we have to prepare for new variants to become dominant
  • Only a matter of time before variants/mutations gain upper hand
  • That could destroy all the progress we've made
