TAT would like to remind all of you to stay safe through this difficult time and follow the health and safety recommendations to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 disease, by keeping social distancing, wearing a mask or cloth mask when going outside, and frequently washing hands. Avoid close contact with other persons, no hugging especially with vulnerable groups like the elderly, or those who have underlying conditions because it can increase the infection rate and potentially lead to severe disease more easily than in other groups.
When staying together, be reminded to wear masks, use personal utensils or serving spoons, or eat a la carte servings to protect yourselves and loved ones from getting the disease.
