THE Land Transportation Office (LTO)-Davao de Oro District Office is under almost a two-week lockdown after one of its utility workers tested positive for coronavirus.

Cañedo ordered all district office employees to self quarantine "after possible exposure to a Covid-19 positive utility worker."

"Work shall resume at 8 a.m. Monday, February 1, 2021, after thorough sanitation and disinfection of workspaces and premises," the memorandum said.

The office will be posting notices outside the offices to inform their clients, the memo added.

As of 10 p.m. of January 20, the Provincial Government reported 32 confirmed cases in Nabunturan, just behind Pantukan with the most confirmed cases with 35.
