Actor-turned-public servant Richard Gomez recently tested positive for COVID-19.
Despite this, the Ormoc City Mayor assured his supporters that he is “okay.”
“I tested positive for Covid. It could be my exposure from multiple people because of work I do as mayor,” the mayor said in a message sent to the media.
“I will need a lot of rest and will have to be in isolation until I’m better. Symptoms are mild and manageable, and I will go back to work as soon as doctors will give the clearance. I ask everyone to continue to be vigilant and safe,” Gomez added.
Recall that last May when Richard had his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
