DAGUPAN CITY – Mayor Brian Lim on Monday placed the city under extreme enhanced community quarantine until April 14 to prevent the transmission of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

In an executive order, Lim said the quarantine will restrict residents from leaving their homes, with only one member of a family will be allowed to buy food, medicines and other basic necessities.

The city has no confirmed case of COVID-19 yet but recorded 19 patients under investigation or PUI being quarantined and monitored by the city health office and the barangay officials.

The city also listed a total of 1,582 persons under monitoring or PUM but 1,149 of them have completed the required 14-day quarantine period.

Lim said the city has readied an isolation center for overseas Filipino workers who will be arriving in the city.

Since public transportation has been suspended in the last two weeks, the city government has been providing shuttle vehicles for health workers in the government and private hospitals.

Village councils have also been providing vehicles for health workers.

Even passenger boats were not allowed to ferry passengers from the island villages, and only fishing and government vessels were permitted to sail and enter the ports of the city to transport basic food supplies and other logistics for the manufacturing of commodities, the order said.
