Las Piñas City is preparing for a third wave of relief operations after the enhanced community quarantine was to May 15.

Mayor Imelda Aguilar asked the city’s 20 barangay captains to prepare their resources in helping their residents, to be ready to give a third wave of family food packs because of the extended ECQ or the possible implementation of an extreme community quarantine in the city.

“I am calling all the barangay captains if they have extra relief packs to reserve [them] for distribution to the city residents for the third wave because of the extended ECQ,” Aguilar said.

The mayor also asked all the barangay captains to put up mini-markets at covered courts in their respective areas of jurisdiction to lessen the number of market-goers in the city’s public markets and talipapas.

“Setting-up of mini-markets in different barangay covered courts [will be] a big help to city residents [because they wouldn’t] need to cross to other barangays [to buy] their basic needs” in the event of an extreme ECQ, Aguilar said.

In a planning session with the different department heads of the city government, Aguilar asked for concrete plans to help residents cope with the additional days of the ECQ.

She said that, aside from relief goods to be distributed by each barangays to their residents, the city government vows to continue with its distribution of family relief packs.

The mayor said that the City Health Office continue to conduct simultaneous rapid testing for all health workers and other frontliners to ensure that they remain free from COVID-19.
