As COVID-19 cases begin to be active again in Tacurong, the city government takes a precautionary measure by subjecting some of its personnel to a random rapid antigen testing to determine if transmission has emerged within the vicinity.
Monday, 17 January 2022, the City Health Office, led by City Epidemiology Surveillance Unit (CESU) Head Marlow Anthony Buenacosa, randomly picked out staff from various offices to undergo an antigen test.
The undertaking also ensued due to City Mayor Lino O. Montilla’s bidding to mitigate the surge of cases, especially within the City Hall Compound now that working operation has resumed to 100%.
“We must always be on our toes and prevent the spread of the virus as early as we can. Let’s not wait until our Active Cases is logged at hundreds again,” Mayor Lino articulated during the flag-raising ceremony of LGU-Tacurong on the above-mentioned date.
