We reiterate the call by the Ministry of Health of the importance of practicing COVID-19 safety measures.

As stated the shifts in the COVID-19 situation has seen the Ministry of Health manage outbreaks in multiple locations across Fiji and this should be a concern for all Fijians.

We are pleading with everyone to work together in stopping the spread of the virus by simply adhering to restrictions and COVID-19 safe measures in place.
