COVID-19 Crisis: More police personnel deployed in malls and hotels in Muntinlupa City due to rising cases

The Muntinlupa City Police Station recently deployed additional personnel and roving teams in malls and hotels amid the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in the city.

MCPS chief-of-police Col. Melecio Buslig ordered the deployment of additional policemen in local malls to help implement the “No Vax Card, No Entry” policy.

Earlier, Metro Manila mayors signed MMDA Resolution 22-01, series of 2022 imposing restrictions and regulation on the movement of unvaccinated individuals, except for essential trips.

Col. Buslig and members of Muntinlupa City Health Office have also visited local hotels which serve as Quarantine Facilities for returning Overseas Filipino Workers for monitoring and inspection.

Local officials held a dialogue and lateral coordination with the Managers and Security Officers of the hotels on their concerns in implementing quarantine policies and reiterated the deployment of additional personnel in their hotel to apprehend any violators.

Further, Muntinlupa CHO ramped up its COVID-19 testing activities and vaccination efforts. At the Museo ng Muntinlupa grounds, city residents are lining up to undergo rapid SARS-CoV-2 antigen and RT-PCR testing.

Those who test positive for COVID-19 are endorsed to quarantine facilities if requirements for home quarantine are not met. Under City Ordinance 2020-106, all COVID-19 cases including asymptomatic, mild, probable, suspected cases, and close contacts are mandated to undergo quarantine at home or in the city’s isolation facilities.

In addition, the City Government activated its “Rolling Bakuna” for mobile vaccination at the Muntinlupa Sports Complex in Bgy. Tunasan to inoculate people.

As of January 5, at least 444,539 doses of COVID-19 vaccine were administered in the city or 116% of the target. Of the total, 369,044 were fully vaccinated or 96% of the target. While, at least 29,029 received their booster shot.

Meanwhile, the City Government launched the pre-registration of minors aged 5 to 11 years old for COVID-19 vaccination.

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi urged parents and guardians to register their children to the Muntinlupa City COVID-19 Vaccination Program (MunCoVac) as protection from the adverse effect of COVID-19.

Muntinlupa residents under the 5-11 age group may be pre-registered online through the city’s COVID-19 vaccination registration system www.vaccine.muntinlupacity.gov.ph/muncovac. The public may choose the category “Pediatric A3 (5-11 yrs. old)” for those with co-morbidities and category “Pediatric/Rest of the Pediatric Population (5-11 yrs. old)” for well-child population or those without co-morbidities.
