Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo, Chairperson of the City’s Inter-Agency Task Force COVID 19, ordered for the continued operations to disinfect public areas including the market, parks, hospitals, streets, malls, city hall compound and others.

Personnel from the City Health Office and City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office carried out the operations, which will continue until all public areas and establishments are sanitized or disinfected.

City Health Dr. Maria Sarah B. Talla appealed to the owners of private establishments to be responsible in sanitizing the interior of their properties as the City Government focuses on disinfecting the public areas of their premises.

“This is a community concern and we appeal from the owners of the establishments to help in disinfecting the properties frequented by the members of the public,” Dr. Talla stressed.

Meanwhile, Mayor Remollo reiterates his request for transport operators to observe or practice sanitation and disinfect their establishments and transportation vehicles.

The operators are enjoined to practice continuous sanitation and disinfection including the provision of hand sanitizers in their establishments such as vehicles, terminals, offices, booths and similar areas where contact to hand is possible.

These guidelines are designed to address the growing concerns of novel coronavirus and to prevent it’s widespread transmission.
