OZAMIZ CITY, Misamis Occidental, (PIA)--The City Government of Ozamiz will continue receiving locally stranded individuals (LSIs) and returning overseas Filipinos (ROFs) this month of December.
Mayor Sancho Fernando Oaminal convened a meeting at New Asenso Ozamiz Session Hall with the 51 barangay captains to discuss about the activities for the month of December while adapting to the new normal.
Based on the Inter Agency Task Force (IATF) guidelines, an ROF is already considered as an authorized person outside residence (APOR) so it should accept but subject to quarantine, the mayor said. He clarified that only the residents of Ozamiz will be accepted.
“This war against the virus is far from over and we will not rest until the battle has been won,” Oaminal said. Oaminal thanked the barangay officials for facilitating the returning residents in the city.
Oaminal also urged all barangay officials to continue on enforcing discipline in their respective barangays because such is the only way to prevent the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases.
“Dili ta magkumpiyansa kay ang virus naa pa dili lang dinhi sa Ozamiz kundi sa tibuok kalibotan,” (We should not be complacent because the virus is still here not only in Ozamiz but in the whole world) he added.
Oaminal, however, made it clear that the government will not sacrifice public health as it makes strides for the new normal. The local government is prepared to spend its own money to keep residents and even non-residents safe from the virus. (SMRN/PIA Misamis Occidental)
