The City’s Inter-Agency Task Force on Coronavirus Chaired by Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo has deployed nurses and personnel from the Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office to screen and check all arriving passengers from sea vessels in the Dumaguete Port.

Medical personnel are checking the temperature of the passengers upon disembarkation using gun type digital thermometer and to check if aside from fever they would manifest some symptoms like sore throat, cough, breathing difficulties, shortness of breath.

Those found with fever and other symptoms will be referred to the City Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit under City Health Officer Maria Sarah B. Talla for further evaluation and appropriate action.
