THE Cebu City Hall, including its satellite offices, will be closed from the public for two days starting on July 9, 2020, to be disinfected.
Cebu City Administrator Floro Casas Jr. said the number of Cebu City Hall employees who contracted with Covid-19 has climbed to 72.
Casas assured that the command center will still be open to accommodate should the public have any inquiries.
Casas said field officers such as traffic enforcers of the Cebu City Transportation Office are exempted and shall continue doing field work.
He said the mayor ordered for the two-day closure and disinfection after some employees of the City Hall reportedly tested positive for Covid-19.
The City administrator also recommended physical work arrangements to further observe social distancing in all the offices inside the City Hall.
He said a work-from-home scheme is being implemented to limit the movements of the City Hall employees, as well as to limit their exposure outside.
He said the City Hall needs to get disinfected since the employees have been dealing with people, doing transactions every day.
Meanwhile, Danao City Mayor Ramon Durano III has temporarily suspended all transactions in the City Social Welfare and Development Office and the Business Permit and Licensing Office until July 12.
This is to give way to the disinfection of the offices to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
In a social media post on July 8, the Danao City Government announced that the following offices will possibly resume operations on July 9: Office of the Mayor, City Human Resource Management Office, City Public Information Office, City Administrator’s Office, Ayuda Office, City Legal Services Office, Go Negosyo Center and Strategic Management Support Office.
“Rest assured that we are doing everything in our capacity to keep Danao City as safe as possible,” said Durano.
Based on data from the city on July 7, Danao has 35 Covid-19 cases, six recoveries and three deaths. (JJL / ANV / CCP)
