San Carlos Mayor Resuello warns return to ECQ if Covid cases rise


SAN CARLOS CITY, Pangasinan – Mayor Julier Resuello again warned residents of a possible return to the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) if health protocol violations persist and result in a rise in the local transmission of the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).

In his live message via Facebook on Friday, Resuello said he would not hesitate to ask the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) to revert the city from the current modified general community quarantine (MGCQ).

He also urged the village chiefs to strictly monitor and implement the proper wearing of face masks, strict physical distancing, curfew, and other minimum health protocols in their respective jurisdictions to ensure the safety of their constituents.

“We are all tired of this situation. Please abide by the rules being imposed because this is for everyone’s safety,” Resuello said, adding the threat of Covid-19 remains until a vaccine is developed.

He noted that the quarantine identification cards (Q-ID) issued per household is still in effect and must be used in accessing basic goods and services in the market and other establishments in the city.

As of this writing, the latest Covid-19 patient in San Carlos City is a 55-year-old female health care worker and resident of Barangay PNR Site.

She is the 15th Covid-19 confirmed case in the city with eight active cases confined in hospitals. (PNA)
