MISAMIS OCCIDENTAL (PIA)–The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Misamis Occidental handed over personal protective equipment (PPE) and supplies to include face shields, face masks, alcohol, thermal scanners and vitamins for the newly hired contact tracers in the province.
In distributing such supplies, DILG also considers the number of local government units (LGUs) which have been subjected to granular/localized lockdown and focused containment to prevent, contain and mitigate the impact of COVID-19 contagion.
DILG MisOcc Provincial Director, Pablio Benitez said, “The PPEs and supplies are vital in stepping up the safety and protection of contact tracers in the face of actual risks associated with the demands of their functions.”
The deployment of the contact tracers is aimed at augmenting and further strengthening the contact tracing teams of LGUs. DILG ensures that this becomes significant and well-timed. (DILG MisOcc/PIA Misamis Occidental)
