Starting tomorrow, March 15, 2020, Port Barton in San Vicente, will be conducting checkpoint to ensure the health and safety of the community, this was announced by Dr. Mercy S. Pablico, municipal health officer of San Vicente, Palawan.
The initiative was approved after the meeting of the barangay local government unit of Port Barton together with their municipal health office (MHO) this afternoon.
“Ang flow ng ating operation ay mamimigay na agad ng evaluation checklist sa terminal para listahan ng name ng mga pasahero para pag dating dito sa checkpoint ng Port Barton ay mag checheck nalang ang ating mga team personnel na naka assign dito. Ang operation ay gagawin tomorrow (March 15) sa junction (entrance ng Port Barton) ang ating venue for the checkpoint,” Dr. Pablico said.
The monitoring team will be composed of uniformed personnel, Barangay Health Workers, Barangay Tanods. And due to lack of manpower to conduct the checkpoint, the officials urged residents to volunteer in assisting in the monitoring. The MHO will be conducting training to those who wanted to volunteer.
“Dahil nga kulang tayo sa mga tao, pwede naman mag volunteer ang people of community para sa gagawing monitoring. Pero bago ang lahat magsasagawa kami ng training para sa tamang pag monitored sa mga subject natin,” Dr. Pablico added.
The municipal health officer advised that people should wash hands regularly, not to panic and avoid believing in fake news.
