Having a Delta variant in Tagum City does not automatically mean that we have to go into ECQ. The decision as to what type of quarantine should we impose depends NOT on the variant that we have but on HOW WELL we are able to control the situation. The standard health protocols against the other variants is also as effective in preventing the spread of delta. Same is true with the vaccines. We just have to be extra careful and vigilant. As long as we are able to contain the situation, there’s no need to panic.”
