Pinget barangay on lockdown
MAYOR Benjamin Magalong on Wednesday ordered the lockdown of Pinget barangay after officials failed to correct implementation of the Enhanced Community Quarantine measures.
Magalong personally visited problematic barangays March 26 to ensure anew that residents are complying with the Enhanced Community Quarantine policy as well as the city's existing rules on sanitation.
The mayor warned San Carlos Heights and Quezon Hill. Ext. of similar fate if they will not put their acts together.
"We found out today that some residents continue to loiter around and do not adhere to the prescribed physical distancing," the mayor said.
"I thought that after getting a warning they learned their lesson because they showed improvement when I visited them last weekend however they did not sustain it," Magalong further added.
City Police Director Allen Ray Co said they implemented the lockout starting 6:30 PM today.
"We established checkpoints in all the entry and exit points of the barangay and no one will be allowed to leave or get in except the critical establishment workers," Co said.
