The government has warned the public to follow the rules
An official from the Department of Health said people should abide by these rules and that much attention should be paid, especially to social distance. At the moment, it is a very critical period. If we don’t follow these rules, lockdown could start again. Everyone needs to be sensible and careful.
Coronavirus tests will be continued and people will be followed up for health. Social distance is very important in beaches, parks and fun centers. We should make it a habit to wear a mask. We have to get used to living this way for a while.
“Lockdown, which has been going on since March, had a negative impact on people. As the government, we have taken these measures to protect public health and now the normalization process has begun. We want the public to support us and live in accordance with these rules.”
