City Administrator Dennis Acorda said that Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano wanted barangays with three or more cases locked down to contain the virus.

He added that the Philippine National Police (PNP) and barangay officials will be augmented by members of the City Environment and Natural Resources Office, the Tricycle-Pedicab Franchising and Regulatory Office, and the Traffic and Parking Management Office to enforce IATF protocols.

They will be deputized to issue citations to those violating the health and safety rules.

The Business Permits and Licensing Office (BPLO) inspection teams will also check on establishments to see if they also comply with IATF protocols. Public markets will also be deputized to inspect stalls and enforce health protocols.

As of 12 noon on Saturday, the city recorded 269 cases. According to the City Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance Unit (CESU), the city had a daily average of 15 cases from October 2020 to February 2021 and 14 cases per day from January 2021 to February 2021.
