Dr Hinds: Mask mandate unlikely to be changed soon


    The mandate to wear masks is unlikely to change in the near future, especially with the threat of COVID-19 variants.

    This is according to Epidemiologist Dr Avery Hinds who today addressed public queries about masking up, in light of the increasing numbers of vaccinated citizens.

    He warned that, even though vaccines reduce COVID-19 risks, masks are still an important layer of protection.

    Recently, it was reported that the Chief Medical Officer warned that it is only a matter of time before T&T records its first case of the Delta variant.

    Dr Hinds today issued a reminder about what makes the variant more transmissible.
