“Bagkus, dapat natin ipagpatuloy ang tamang pagsunod sa minimum public health standards at laging magsuot ng facemask na may face shield, mag physical distancing, at maghugas ng kamay. Agad rin na magpabakuna upang makakuha ng dagdag na proteksyon laban sa COVID-19 (Instead, we must continue to properly adhere to minimum public health standards and always wear a face mask and face shield, observe physical distancing, and wash our hands. Also, get vaccinated immediately to get extra protection against COVID-19),” it added.
