Pasay City Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano asked all chairmen of the city's 201 barangays to put into operation mobile phone (cellphone) hotlines for COVID-19, through which their constituents could communicate with them while these residents abide by the "stay at home" quarantine regulation.

“Ang bawat isa sa mga barangays na ito ay dapat maglaan ng at least isang cellphone – pwedeng yung personal cellphone ni Chairman o ni Kagawad o kahit kanino man dun sa kanilang barangay hall – na magiging Barangay Hotline for COVID-19, para yung kanilang constituents ay doon na lang sa Hotline na iyon makikipag-usap sa mga barangay officials tungkol sa anumang concern nila na may kinalaman sa COVID-19 at sa quarantine,” Mayor Emi said.

She added, “Sa pamamagitan ng ganitong Barangay Hotline system ay mababawasan ang paglabas-labas ng ating mga residente sa kanilang bahay upang sa ganoon ay maiwasan din natin ang pagkalat ng virus.”

The mayor noted that many people tend to frequent their barangay halls to check on the schedule of delivery of food packs, on the inclusion of their names on the list of beneficiaries, the schedule of disinfection operation or to bring to their officials any personal or community concerns related to the virus outbreak and the imposed Luzon-wide quarantine such as complaints about people violating the curfew and the like.

“Iniiwasan po natin dito yung maraming tao ang lumalabas ng kanilang bahay at pupunta o magkukumpulan pa sila sa barangay hall. So, hindi na nga nasusunod yung stay-at-home quarantine regulation, madalas pa rin tuloy na hindi nasusunod yung social distancing kung magkataong marami silang magkakasabay na pupunta sa barangay hall at magkukumpulan silang lahat doon,” Mayor Emi said.

These Barangay Hotlines for COVID-19 could also serve residents who might observe some ailment symptoms in their bodies and would feel more comfortable consulting or discussing this with barangay officials whom they have been personally familiar with, being neighbors for some time already. In such a case, the concerned barangay officials should immediately coordinate this with the Pasay City Health Office and they (barangay officials) must strictly observe the subject person’s privacy and sensitive information and condition.

Mayor Emi said all respective barangay officials must inform their constituents about their Barangay Hotline/s for COVID-19 including their purpose.

They must likewise share these Barangay Hotline/s for COVID-19 with the Pasay City Public Information Office (PIO) and the Pasay City Health Office (CHO) for these offices’ database and for ready access, communication and reference.
