Governor Dennis Pineda, together with the municipal health officers (MHOs) in the province, personally visited on Wednesday the facility that will be rented by the provincial government from the NGAC.

“Joint project po natin ito sa national government. Dito muna pansamantalang mamalagi at gagamutin ang mga kabalen natin na may mild Covid-19 (This is our joint project with the national government. Our kabalen (provincemates) who have mild Covid-19 will temporarily stay and be treated here,” Pineda said in his social media account.

The facility has a 311-bed capacity with air-conditioning system. Internet connection will likewise be installed.

Aside from the quarantine facility at the NGAC, the governor said Building B of the Athletes’ Village is also being used as isolation center.

He also said the permanent evacuation center in Mexico town is being readied in case there is a need for more patient care centers.

Meanwhile, Pineda said public schools in the province will be used as isolation facility for those who are close contacts of positive Covid-19 patients.

Nakikiusap po ako sa inyo mag-ingat pa lalo tayo sa Covid-19 para makapagligtas tayo ng buhay at makabangon na ang ating ekonomiya (I am appealing to you to be more careful with Covid-19 so that we can save lives and rebuild our economy). Let us learn to live with this problem, the governor told the MHOs.
