ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal - The entire town of Cainta in Rizal will be under community quarantine beginning March 15 due to three confirmed cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

In his Facebook post on Thursday night, Cainta Mayor Johnielle Keith "Kit" Nieto said the decision to quarantine the town is pursuant to the President Duterte's national address on COVID-19 and the presence of three confirmed cases in Barangays San Isidro and San Andres, two of whom died on March 11.

"I am constrained to place the entire town of Cainta under quarantine. The implementation however shall coincide with the effectivity of Resolution No. 11 series of 2020 issued by the inter-agency task force for the management of emerging infectious diseases," said Nieto.


The mayor also reported the town's other measures prior to the quarantine in his FB account.

"Dadalawin lahat ng seniors' presidents ng iba't-ibang sitio para mamigay ng mga vitamins para depensa nila sa virus. Sila kasi yung vulnerable sector na base sa record, ay tinatamaan ng sakit na ito," the mayor stated in another post.

The town's safety protocols include town-wide cleansing, misting and spraying activities; provision of alcohol and cancellation of public events until the quarantine is lifted.

The local business permit office's purchase control team will check on hoarding of goods in groceries.

"Babalansahin ko ang prioridad na siguruhin ang kaligtasan ng mga tao sa isang banda at ang pangangailangan ng taong manatiling nagtatrabaho para buhayin ang kanilang pamilya sa kabilang banda," Nieto said. (GG/PIA-Rizal)
