The local exec urges qualified residents who are members of the priority groups to avail the vaccination services of the government for them to have an added protection against the adverse effects of COVID-19.

Recently, the City Government of Muntinlupa has reduced the composition of its skeletal workforce including its operating hours following a surge of COVID-19 positive cases among staff.

The reduction in the work force covers offices in the Main Building, Annex Building, and People’s Center starting April 5, 2021 to give way to intensive disinfection, testing, and quarantine measures.

On April 5, the City Health Office has conducted a mass antigen testing of staff who reported physically for work. The CHO is closely monitoring all positive and probable COVID-19 cases among the workforce and implements strict isolation protocols, including contact tracing.

Further, Muntinlupa City started distributing the emergency subsidy from the national government to families affected by the enhanced community quarantine in NCR Plus. An initial pay-out for 1,322 beneficiaries was conducted at Tiosejo Covered Court, Brgy. Tunasan and Sucat Elementary School, Brgy. Sucat last April 8.

The priority beneficiaries for the financial assistance include SAP beneficiaries, SAP wait-listed, those belonging to vulnerable groups, and low-income individuals, among others.

COVID-19 Crisis: Muntinlupa City Government receives P442-M from national gov’t, to start subsidy pay-out today

The City Government of Muntinlupa announced that it has officially received P442,191,000 from the Department of Budget and Management and Department of Social Welfare and Development as part of the national government’s emergency subsidy to families affected by the enhanced community quarantine in NCR Plus.

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi signed an executive order for the distribution of financial assistance amounting to P1,000 per individual with a maximum amount of P4,000 per family to target beneficiaries which include individuals from the Social Amelioration Program, 4Ps, low-income individuals, and those working in informal economies affected by the community quarantine, among others.

Fresnedi said qualified Muntinlupa city residents will receive the assistance in cash to help them recover from economic disruption brought about by the imposition of ECQ (enhanced community quarantine) in Metro Manila. At least 80% of the population of Muntinlupa is set to receive the emergency subsidy.

An initial pay-out will be facilitated in Tiosejo Covered Court, Brgy. Tunasan and Sucat Elementary School, Brgy. Sucat this afternoon at 2:00PM. The recipients will be assigned to different schedules to ensure compliance on social distancing and other health measures.

The local exec noted that the assistance will be in cash because the City Government has already been providing food packs to city residents since the beginning of the pandemic.

This past March, the Muntinlupa Social Service Department provided 9,989 food packages to tricycle and jeepney operators and drivers, daily wage earners who were affected by the lockdown, families of city scholars, and other members of disadvantaged groups. Each food box contains grocery items worth 785.00 pesos. Muntinlupa LGU has distributed 695,184 food boxes to city residents from March 2020 up to present.

Fresnedi called for a coordination meeting with barangay officials on Tuesday for the roll-out of the financial assistance in the communities.

Muntinlupa Public Information Officer Tez Navarro said the City Government will be tapping barangay information officers for the posting of approved list of beneficiaries as mandated by the national government.

As per Joint Memorandum Circular 1 of DBM, DSWD, and DND, LGUs are enjoined to post in its official website, social media accounts, and at conspicuous places the list of approved beneficiaries limited only to the names of beneficiaries including their barangay and district.

Further, LGUs shall manage and conduct the distribution of the emergency subsidy within fifteen (15) calendar days from release of Notice of Cash Allocation if the assistance is done in cash and within thirty (30) days if assistance is given in kind.

As of April 7, Muntinlupa City has 8,416 confirmed COVID-19 cases with 6,664 recoveries, 1,531 active cases, 221 reported deaths, 232 suspect cases, and 632 probable cases.
