In addition, we need to ensure that our Kupuna are taking care of and they have opportunities to have social connections within the policies of distancing and groupings. Know that these policies all have one goal in common, and that is to help stop the spreading of the Coronavirus to those that have it, to those who do not, this is why you are asked to wear a mask.
