“Also, you should wear masks in appropriate settings, such as areas where other people are unmasked or you’re unsure of their vaccination status,” he reiterates. “And, finally, if you have symptoms that are concerning for COVID-19, check with your health care provider and get appropriate testing so that you don’t expose others.”
With Omicron being reported as the COVID-19 variant that will likely overtake Delta in its frequency soon, people worldwide are bracing themselves for a surge in 2022.

Lapses, violations, and rule-bending for profit, all while potentially exposing the general public to COVID-19 could prove deadly. We cannot afford to be complacent.
