THE local government of Magalang recorded the town's 38th coronavirus disease (Covid-19) case on Tuesday, September 15.

This brought the number of active Covid-19 cases in the municipality to 11.

Patient M38 is a 53-year-old woman residing in Barangay Santa Cruz.

The Municipal Health Office said the symptomatic patient is set to be transferred to the Jose B. Lingad Memorial Regional Hospital in the City of San Fernando.

The patient's family members were placed under home quarantine by the local government.

Meanwhile, Municipal Councilor Koko P. Gonzales said that the Municipal Council has passed an ordinance for the temporary closure of cemeteries in the town.

"Ngayon araw po, ang Sangguniang Bayan ng Magalang ay ipinasa po ang isang ordinansa natin patunkol po sa pansamantalang pagpapasara ng mga sementeryo dito sa ating bayan dahil ito na rin po ang nakikita nating hakbang upang maiwasan natin paglaganap ng Covid-19," Gonzales said.

This is in adherence to the directive of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases banning gatherings and social events, including the observance of the All Saints' Day on November 1.

"Sa nakikita po natin, sa darating na Undas ay marami pong magtitipon-tipon sa ating mga sementeryo lalo na po dito sa bayan natin. Nakikita natin ang mga kababayan natin na nasa ibang lugar at dahil tayo ay nasa MGCQ na ay posible po na magsisiuwian sila," Gonzales said.
