A local mine site in Tuba and Itogon, Benguet are under lockdown from September 11 to September 25 to curb the increasing number of COVID-19 cases on site and in neighboring areas.

Itogon Mayor Victorio Palangdan ordered the lockdown to give way to the contact-tracing efforts to determine who has been in close contact with the 58 individuals who tested positive. The Politiko added that this is to prevent the spread of the virus in the locality as part of the Prevent-Isolate-Detect-Treat and Reintegrate (PIDTR) program.

Meanwhile, those who tested positive are under strict monitoring and now in home quarantine.
