Baguio to temporarily close 4 isolation centers


The Baguio city government will temporarily close four isolation centers as part of its cost-cutting measures.

City Health Officer Dr. Rowena Galpo said among the facilities up for temporary closure are the V dorms and the Ferioni apartment along Teodora Alonzo Street.

But Mayor Benjamin Magalong said the isolation facilities can be reopened in case of another surge of coronavirus disease (COVID19) cases in the Summer Capital.

The city government earlier increased the capacity of the former Sto. Niño Hospital to 300 beds.

Meanwhile, the Baguio Teachers Camp isolation units has been increased to 500.
