He assured his constituents that he will continue to work remotely while undergoing isolation for the next seven days.
Sotto cautioned the public against the prevailing threat of the Covid-19, particularly the Omicron variant.
"Matindi talaga ang pagkalat ng Omicron—sabi nga ng ibang eksperto, lahat tayo ay mae-expose sa variant na ito. Kaya lagi po tayong mag-iingat, palakasin natin ang ating mga resistensya, at maging responsable—kung may sintomas wag na munang lumabas (The Omicron variant is extremely spreading—as some experts say, all of us will be exposed to this variant. So let's always be careful, strengthen our resistance and be responsible, if you have symptoms, refrain from going out)," Sotto said.
