In spite of the second to the lowest alert level imposed nationwide, the government (and this writer) encourage everyone to get vaccinated and to make sure that in spite of vaccination, to follow minimum health standards of wearing a proper fitting mask, avoiding crowds and congested places, avoid unnecessary gatherings, and continue to wash hands and practice proper cough/sneeze etiquette.
