“It is imperative that all of us should safeguard ourselves from the contagion as ultimately, it is our families/ loved ones that we protect by the measures we take. As we resume our daily labor, therefore, never let your guard down; for in any battle, it is when the level of vigilance is reduced that the enemy is able to gain a foothold,” Gov. Bonifacio C.
