Itogon continues to record new coronavirus disease (COVID19) cases heading into the Christmas holidays.
Mayor Victorio Palangdan said the town has 31 new cases in the past seven days.
The Benguet politiko said the new cases were close contacts of previously confirmed cases.
“MHSO started the Aggressive Community Testing today with a total of 258 collected swab samples in barangays Loacan and Ucab. The ACT will continue until December 18th to test all food and non-food business establishment personnel and PUJ/tricycle drivers,” Palangdan said.
“With the uptick of new confirmed cases, let us intensify our compliance to health protocols especially this holiday season,” he added.
