He said that they hold regular meetings with the barangay officials and also visit the business establishments to check if they are following the protocols and complying and following the ordinance of the province that requires all residents in the province of Davao del Sur to register to the Davao del Sur Contact Tracing System (DS-CCTS).

He has also mandated all barangay officials to strictly follow the protocols coming from the IATF, all the executive orders released by the municipality and ordinances regarding COVID-19.

He emphasized that even though the municipality has recorded minimal cases of COVID-19, all protocols and executive orders mandated by the national, provincial and local government should be strictly implemented.

“…dapat po always nating ilagay sa ating utak yun na dapat di tayo relax na kahit zero na dito yung case sa Kiblawan kailangan meron talaga kaming strict implementation (we shouldn’t be relaxed just because we have zero case in Kiblawan, we should still follow the protocols and strictly implement them),” Rama stated.
