Most residents and visitors of the city are adjusting to the required use of face masks and physical/social distancing especially when they need to venture outside their homes in order to prevent local transmission of COVID-19 virus.

Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo, Chairperson of the Inter-Agency Task Force COVID-19, stressed the need for citizens and institutions to adjust to these health habits as part of the “new normal” due to the pandemic even after the General Community Quarantine.

The public market and stores are also imposing health protocols to be followed by those trying to get inside the establishments by checking body temperatures and regulating the number of clients allowed inside their premises for easier crowd management.
