She acknowledged the efforts of frontline workers in the fight against COVID-19, urging residents in the state to assist the government by adhering strictly to all the safety protocols against the disease.
She also expressed hope that this year would be full of accomplishments, projecting that the state would grow stronger despite the pandemic.
“All hands must be on deck towards flattening the curve of the second wave of the virus by strictly adhering to all preventive and safety guidelines designed to ward off the threat of the virus,” she said.
