The Himamaylan City Hall has been placed on lockdown effective yesterday, pending the release of the RT-PCR test results of two employees assigned at the offices of the Mayor and the City Treasurer.
Mayor Raymund Tongson, in an advisory on his Facebook account, advised employees, especially those who got their salary from the City Treasurer’s Office, and those who visited the City Mayor’s Office, to undergo quarantine.
The indefinite closure of the Himamaylan City Hall will pave the way for its disinfection and decontamination.
Tongson also enjoined those who attended the meeting at the Himaya Hall at the 3rd floor of City Hall to undergo quarantine, and appealed for the cooperation of Himamaylanons in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Kabankalan City Hall is also on lockdown until Nov. 25, after 18 of its employees tested positive for the coronavirus disease 2019.
