“In view of the confirmed presence of the Delta, Mu and Gamma variants in the community and  the significant increase in the number of new infections, transmission and severe COVID-19 disease, strict enforcement and compliance with all protocols and recommendations by everyone is strongly recommended. The correct and consistent use of masks, avoidance of crowds, physical  distancing, proper hand sanitizing and immunization with available vaccines have all been proven  to significantly reduce the risk of being infected, getting sick and or dying from the COVID-19  virus,” the release from NEMO said.
