The City’s Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, chaired by Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo, authorized the recent disinfection of the various facilities and cells of the City District Jail to prevent any transmission of COVID-19.
Personnel from the City Health Office conducted deep cleaning and sanitation of the entire jail compound as a means to maintain zero COVID case among all the Persons Deprived of Liberty (PDLs).
Mayor Remollo is coordinating closely with the jail wardens of both male and female dormitories that are currently on lockdown since the pandemic started.
Jail guards are required to undergo 14-day quarantine before and after assuming their shifts. Meanwhile, the City Health Office is also supplying multi-vitamins and other provisions to the PDLs.
