IN A bid to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus disease now called Covid-19, the Angeles City Government has installed hand sanitizing stations around the city hall building.
Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr., instructed Executive Assistant IV Reina Manuel, to put up the hand sanitizing stations in areas around the building where people usually pass by, such as staircases and hallways.
“The Covid-19 virus is still ongoing globally, therefore we must stay at the peak of our preventative measures against it,” Lazatin said, adding that, “The alcohol stations provided are for everyone, both employees and visitors of the city hall. This is to make sure we have accessible sanitizing options wherever part of the building we’re at, and to not further transmit any sort of disease.”
Based on the City Government’s Memorandum Order No. 171, series of 2020, or The Measures to Prevent the Spread of the Covid-19, “Preventive measures to mitigate the spread of the disease by compliance with the distribution of face masks, where all front liners are required to wear face masks at all times; and the constant and timely dissemination of information through the City Information Office Facebook page to spread awareness and disease prevention tips, among others.”
Earlier, Lazatin also released the Memorandum No. 175, series of 2020 that orders establishments and people from hoarding and overpricing face masks, alcohol, hand sanitizers, and other similar products used to prevent the Covid-19.
