Why is social distancing still necessary?

Social distancing is still really important in limiting the risk of further COVID-19 outbreaks and should be practiced wherever possible.

The public health strategy remains the same: 'test, trace and quarantine'. 

Contact tracing relies on knowing who you have recently been in close contact with if you were to develop symptoms. This is why social distancing is particularly important with strangers when outside or at the supermarket etc.
