IT seems our people are bored and tired of wearing masks when going out in the public.
Take a ride or walk through our city or along our community roads, you will see majority of our people walking in public spots or gathering in a group without wearing anything to cover their nose and mouth.
Its a risky undertaking.
While its their freedom of choice to do so, government’s regulation has advised that when you our visiting the city, ensure you wear masks and practise social distancing.
Sadly, just over two months, our people are ignoring the simple rules not to wear masks and practising social distance.
The buses are crowded and the passengers do not even bother to wear a mask when inside the bus.
There are others who simply wish to be like others who are not wearing masks so they just avoid it. But you must think ‘safety first’ than trying to be like others.
There may be reasons related to costs. However, its good to get a washable and reusable mask so that you don’t have to buy a new one each time you visit the city or a public place.
Remember COVID-19 will be here for sometimes. So its important to continue maintain the health measures and safety protocols all the times.
If people continue to ignore the health measures and protocols, then who knows theres a chance of a second wave.
So please its important never to let your guards down.
Although cases may be slowing down for the cities, but lets continue to maintain the health protocols.
Being ignorant is not good because it may cost you later.
We don’t want to go into another lockdown or curfew being imposed should the second wave hit, thats why its important for all us to maintain the health practises.
Please, remember we are still in a pandemic and the crisis is not over yet.
So if today you are heading out for work, stroll, visiting a friend or shopping do the right thing – Mask Up!
