Employees-on-duty at the headquarters of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) voluntarily wore masks amid the risk of the 2019 novel coronavirus.

Although there are still no confirmed novel coronavirus cases in the country, BI personnel remain vigilant by wearing masks to prevent any health risks.

Immigration Spokesperson Krizia Sandoval said their employees in the main headquarters are transacting with hundreds of foreigners everyday, so they voluntarily decided to wear face masks.

“For our front line personnel we advise them po to wear protective masks na rin wala namang mawawala kung sila ay magsusuot ng mga mask para po maprotektahan ang kanilang mga sarili (we advise them to wear protective masks. There is no harm in wearing one to protect yourself),” she said.

The Immigration official also said that even the individuals visiting their offices are also wearing masks.

The BI previously advised their front line personnel at airports to wear personal protective equipment like face masks for their protection.—AAC (with reports from Dante Amento)
