Mayor asks constituents to stay home, prevent Covid-19

ANGELES City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin, Jr. has reiterated his appeal to his constituents to stay home in order to prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus disease or Covid-19.

“Patuloy po akong nakikiusap sa aking mga kababayan, huwag na po tayong lumabas sa ating bahay kung hindi lang po importante. Para malabanan ang Covid-19, kailangan i-limit ang movement ng bawat isa,” the city mayor said.

Lazatin at the same time asked business establishments to close down if not necessary.

“Nakikiusap din po ako sa mga establishments na hindi po kailangan na sana ay huwag na po kayong magbukas para makatulong po kayo sa pag-control sa movement ng mga tao,” the local chief executive added.

The city government has procured food supplies and other relief goods for the people especially those affected by the Enhanced Community Quarantine the national government implemented in the entire Luzon Island, Lazatin said.

“Magtulungan po tayo sa laban nating ito. Para po sa kaalaman ng mga nakararami, tayo po ay nagimbak ng food supplies sa siyudad,” he added.

Lazatin said he urged barangay officials in the city to follow suit and prepare relief goods for their respective barriomates.

“Nakiusap din po ako sa mga mga barangay officials na tulungan ang siyudad na magimbak din ng pagkain at i-complement ang resources ng city,” the mayor said.

The food supplies will be distributed to the people in the eventuality of a total lockdown and a food shortage, according to the mayor.

Lazatin also called on employers and business owners to provide assistance to their workers.

He urged the people to follow the regulations of the city in order to maintain Angeles as Covid-free city.

“Patuloy po tayong sumunod sa mga regulasyon ng siyudad upang manatiling Covid free ang Angeles City,” Lazatin said.

He also thanked the city government’s offices for supporting the quarantine effort.

“Sa pagkakataong ito, nagpapasalamat po ako sa mga health workers ng Ospital Ning Angeles (ONA), City Health Office, Disaster Response Office, Command Center, EMS, GAD, ACEDECO, Mayors’ Office, CIO, ACTO, CENRO, PTRO, at lahat ng skeletal force ng city hall dahil sa kanilang dedikasyon at suporta,” Lazatin said.

He also lauded the city’s police force for ensuring the safety of the Angelenos.

“Sa ating barangay officials, sa kanilang suporta. Patuloy po sana tayong magtulungan. Maraming maraming salamat po,” Lazatin said.

The mayor has placed the city under a state of calamity.
