Ortom stated that while on December 14, 2020, he tested negative for COVID-19, the fact that some of his close aides tested positive made it necessary that he go into isolation as the protocol to curb the requirements of the virus.

He said that the second step of the pandemic, according to medical scientists, is deadlier and thus needs everyone’s help to contain it.

However, the Governor stressed that COVID-19 is real and that protective steps such as physical distancing, wearing face masks, washing hands with soap and the use of sanitizers need to be taken by individuals.
