remains under MGCQ
BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

 

Negros Occidental, except Bacolod City, remains under Modified General Community Quarantine until Sept. 30.

With 2,235 confirmed Covid-19 positive cases, as of yesterday, Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson issued yesterday an executive order stating that there is still a need to place Negros Occidental under MGCQ because of the rising cases of the virus all over the country.

Bacolod City has been placed under Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine until Sept. 30.

Lacson warned that all persons or establishments violating the provisions of the executive order and the health and safety protocols will face appropriate administrative or criminal charges.

The Talisay City Police Station also issued an advisory that it will strictly implement anti-Covid-19 basic health protocols, such as wearing of face masks and shields, physical distancing, among other quarantine procedures, starting today.

Talisay City has the most number of Covid-19 positive cases all over Negros Occidental.

Criminal charges will be filed against violators, the Talisay City police, headed by P/Maj. Jigger Gimeno, said in the advisory.

The 3rd district of Negros Occidental also topped the number of Covid-19 patients among the six districts of Negros Occidental, excluding the Bacolod lone district, with 823, and trailed behind by the 4th district with 384 cases, 2nd district – 252, 6th district - 191, 5th district - 176, and 1st district - 145, as of Sept. 14, based on the records released by the provincial government.*
