The Saint Lucia Medical and Dental Association (SLMDA) has issued a word of caution to voters as this country goes to the polls on Monday, urging citizens to remember that
COVID-19 is still a very real, very present threat which continues to claim lives,
young and old.
“We urge you, our fellow citizens, to adhere to the tried and tested public health
protocols. Please ensure that you wear your masks correctly, continuously sanitise hands and in as much as possible when standing in line, stay six feet from others,” the association’s Public relations Officer, Dr. Monique Monplaisir said in a statement on Sunday.
“If you feel unwell or have respiratory symptoms please seek medical advice,” Monplaisir urged.
She observed that lines are expected to be longer than usual given the protocols.
As a result, the SLMDA official called on voters to ensure that they have water and remain hydrated.
“Use sunscreen and remain sheltered from the sun as much as possible. Remember that when all is said and done we are all Saint Lucians first. Stay safe and God bless,” Monplaisir said in conclusion.
