CITY OF MALOLOS, Bulacan — Governor Daniel R. Fernando has ordered to strictly follow his directives in terms of intensified strategies of the province against COVID-19 including prevention, detection, isolation, or quarantine, testing and treatment.

This was Gov. Fernando’s mandate during the joint Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (PDRRMC) and the city and municipal disaster risk reduction and management offices’ 3rd quarter meeting via Zoom on Thursday.

The governor particularly pointed out the coordination of all local government units of the province for contact tracing and isolation or quarantine.

He said, “kailangan ko ang aktibong paggawa ng bawat isa sa kanilang tungkulin”.

He also gave directives to the Provincial Task Force COVID-19 specifically Health, Response and Law and Order Clusters to identity what is lacking or possible problems arising during the implementation of protocols to be able to perform immediate solution.

He added that the guidance and support of the united efforts of the local chief executives, PNP, C/MDRRMO, C/MHO, and barangay government is very important.

Some of the topics discussed during the meeting include having operational quarantine or isolation facilities in each town and city.

He called the attention of the municipal and city mayors about having a designated quarantine facility in their localities.

Fernando also said that he is in favor of “No Home Quarantine” so as to avoid contraction of the virus among family members but if all facilities are full then that is the time the patient can undergo home quarantine.

“Having a facility for COVID-19 patients can greatly help prevent the inflation of positive cases. Also, we assist with the delivery of asymptomatic patients of COVID-19 to quarantine facilities,” Fernando said. (RONDA BALITA Online)
