In the meantime, we are again reminding the public not to panic because they were placed in our quarantine/isolation facility upon their arrival. They will also be closely monitored by our local health personnel, so there is no chance to be in contact with the general public.

The Local Government of Maasin continues to work closely with our contact tracing team and instructed them to submit immediately those who have primary exposure to the patients, as well as their secondary contacts, in order to closely monitor the following individuals in our isolation center. The said primary and secondary contacts will then undergo a RT-PCR (Swab) Test.

In view of this current circumstance, we would like to appeal to all constituents to please strictly follow and adhere to the protocols set forth by the government. We all have the moral and legal responsibilities to stop the spread of the virus.
