AN Multimedia and The Africans Help Desk, would like to wish you and yours a happy and healthy holiday season. It has been a tumultuous year, with so many people lost due to the Corona Virus pandemic. We pray for the souls of those lost, and we pray for a better 2021.
We would also like to remind you that Covid 19 is still around. The United Kingdom is in a complete shutdown, with a new strain of the virus that experts have said can easily affect children. As a result, several countries have placed restrictions on travel from the U.K., including their neighbors like France, Italy and many others.
Governor Cuomo of New York, today, called on the Department of Homeland Security to institute a mandatory 72 hour testing protocols for all travelers from the U.K. to the New York area. which has seen cases which had been on a decline, finally going up again. Phil Murphy, the governor of New Jersey, reported that for the second day in a row, the state had more than 100 Covid 19 related deaths.
As a result, the restrictions which were placed during the lockdown period, are back in place. All indoor dining has been banned. Also, social gatherings are being limited to just those in your household. Everyone is asked to celebrate the holidays in their homes.
Below is the current guidelines for Social gatherings which the Governor and New York City Mayor have announced that New York Marshalls will be out enforcing during this holiday season;
Gatherings: Non-essential gatherings of any size are prohibited and must be postponed or cancelled. Any individual who encourages, promotes or organizes mass gatherings may be fined up to $15,000/day.
Please follow these protocols, and hopefully, we would have a merry and joyous 2021 celebrations free of Covid 19, or at the very least, be immune to the virus with the vaccine now being administered.
Once again, have a safe, happy and healthy holidays from all of us here at AN Multimedia and The Africans Help Desk !!!
