Hi Wenny,

For Harvard UTS referencing, you almost always use a retrieval date, written as 'viewed'. Eg: viewed 30 May 2020

For APA 7th referencing retrieval dates aren't used much - only for resources that change constantly but have the same URL - like this Worldometers Coronavirus page - https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

If you feel like the page you are looking at fits into the above category you express the retrieval data like this: Retrieved May 30, 2020

Hope this helps!
