Since today happens to be a holiday and most of the City Government employees did not report to work except the COVID-19 frontliners and other essential staff, Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo, Chairperson of the City’s Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, instructed the City Health Office to conduct a general sanitation and disinfection activity to all City Government offices and departments as a means to prevent the transmission of COVID-19.
The City Health Office has been conducting weekly disinfection activities of all departments and public spaces in the City Hall compound since February but today’s exercise was more extensive due to the very limited number of employees and zero presence of clients.
President Rodrigo Duterte has declared Friday (July 31, 2020) as a nationwide regular holiday in observance of Eid’l Adha or the Feast of Sacrifice.
