In a bid to reduce the risk of COVID-19 outbreak in Muntinlupa City, the local government through the City Health Office conducts a citywide disinfection of public schools and government buildings as part of its preventive measures.

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi ordered the CHO on Tuesday to intensify the cleaning and disinfecting of public schools, including the strengthening of information drive on personal hygiene and cough etiquette, to further lower the risk of spreading the novel corona virus among city residents.

“We cannot be complacent with the recent development of local transmission of COVID-19. In response to the rise of confirmed cases in the country, we have placed our City Health Office, local hospitals, and school administrators on heightened alert to prevent the possible spread of the new strain of coronavirus in Muntinlupa. We are mobilizing the city’s COVID-19 task force to implement measures to ensure the public's safety and health,” Fresnedi said.

The local exec urged the public to be vigilant and practice proper hygiene, observe proper cough etiquette, and adopt healthy lifestyles to increase body resistance against infections.

Muntinlupa City Health Officer Dra. Teresa Tuliao said the local government is closely coordinating with the Department of Health and Research Institute for Tropical Medicine regarding the health event and protocols for the referral and transferring of persons under investigation.

Tuliao led an emergency meeting with the City Government’s general service officers, Schools Division of Muntinlupa execs, and school principals for a briefing on COVID-19 updates and the disinfection initiative in public schools.

The city health officer also encouraged the school officials to intensify IEC campaign and reporting of community members with travel history for monitoring.

To date, there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Muntinlupa City.

Recently, the local government also called for a meeting with barangay emergency response units, barangay officials and health workers, mall owners, hoteliers, and other commercial establishment owners to discuss the latest updates on COVID-19.

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi ordered the creation of Muntinlupa COVID-19 Task Force through Executive Order 2 s. 2020 as a pro-active measure against the spread of the disease in the city. The local task force spearheads the implementation of DOH protocols and guidelines and extends full cooperation with the department and other national government agencies.

Muntinlupa City residents are highly encouraged to immediately visit local health centers or Ospital ng Muntinlupa if they are experiencing symptoms of the virus. For more information, the public may coordinate with Ospital ng Muntinlupa at 8771-0457 or with DOH at 771-1001/711-1002.
