August came and went and l am glad to see the back of it. August 1st was our emancipation day and August 6 independence day. Because of Covid the celebrations were low keyed. The government relaxed curfew restrictions during this time, which I believed was a grave mistake because now we have a spike in the number of cases. There has been an increase in the death toll associated with Covid. Several offices had to be closed, including mine as more persons are being infected. I am happy to report I am doing well and will continue to follow the protocols to ensure that I remain Covid free.
