Mandaluyong City Mayor Carmelita “Menchie” Abalos asked the public to practice hygiene and refrain from attending public gatherings for the meantime following the confirmed presence of local transmission of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the country.
She also urged her constituents to postpone assemblies as well as social gatherings, particularly with senior citizens and children in attendance.
“Sila ang sektor na may mataas na posibilidad ng pagkakasakit mula sa COVID-19,” said Abalos in a social media post over the weekend.
The mayor called for the cancellation of scheduled events for the celebration of feast day in every barangays in Mandaluyong to avoid the convergence of people in one place.
“Araw-araw ay maglinis ng kapaligiran at magdis-infect sa mga pampubliko at pribadong paaralan sa Lungsod. Gayun din sa lahat ng Health Centers,” Abalos ordered.
“Ugaliing maglagay ng alcohol sa entrance at exit ng mga nasabing institusyon,” she added.
Children and students who are experiencing flu-like symptoms should refrain from attending their classes for the meantime and immediately consult their doctors for proper medications, Abalos said.
Public places such as shopping malls, parks, grocery stores, churches and other public and private establishment should also use thermoscans and provide the public with disinfectants.
“Hangga’t maaari ay umiwas muna sa pag travel sa labas ng bansa higit lalo sa mga bansang may mataas na bilang ng kaso ng COVID-19,” said Abalos.
“Ugaliing magtakip ng bibig kung uubo o babahing, at ang madalas na paghuhugas ng kamay. Iwasang humawak sa ano mang bahagi ng mukha sa tuwing nasa labas ng ating mga tahanan,” she added.
Abalos said there is no confirmed case of COVID-19 in Mandaluyong.
“Ang ating lungsod ay handa sa banta ng nasabing sakit at patuloy na magmomonitor sa mga kaugnay na kaso nito,” she said.
