DUMAGUETE CITY, Nov. 23 (PIA) -- The Dumaguete City Police Office including anti-crime organizations and barangay officials are on full alert in the various quarantine control points (QCPs) in the different borders to ensure that all health protocols against the COVID-19 pandemic are observed by those entering in the city during the celebration of the 72nd Charter Anniversary this week.

City Chief-of Police Lt. Col. Mark Gifter Sucalit has presented to Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo the deployment plan of additional personnel including volunteers to increase their presence in the QCPs.

This is set particularly in the North City Limit in Buñao, Larena Drive, Camanjac-Magatas, Candau-ay-Palinpinon, West City Limit Talay, Bajumpandan-Isugan, and South City Limit in Banilad.

Dumaguete City remains under the modified general community quarantine (MGCQ), hence, the City’s Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases has strongly discouraged mass gatherings and banquets/parties should be strictly limited to members of the same household.

Non-residents of Dumaguete City are also discouraged from going to the city to join any festivities or gatherings as a safety measure.

Remollo reminded the public that due to the threats of COVID-19 there is a need to celebrate the Charter Anniversary and annual fiesta modestly and avoid inviting non-members of the households, especially those from outside the city, to attend parties/banquets here.

The police and barangay officials will vigorously enforce quarantine measures through the QCPs in the borders and conduct patrols in the neighborhoods. (jct/PIA7 Negros Oriental)
