COVID-19 Crisis: Muntinlupa City partners with Staysafe.PH for mandatory contact tracing in establishments

The City Government of Muntinlupa partners with Staysafe.PH to implement a “No QR Code, No Entry Policy” in all establishments for mandatory contact tracing effective January 2021.

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi approved City Ordinance No. 2020-181 mandating the installation and use of Staysafe.PH system as an automated contact tracing through the use of QR Codes in all commercial establishments, workplaces, churches, and government offices.

All residents and visitors who will enter, work, or do business in all indoor or enclosed public and private establishments in Muntinlupa shall be required to download the StaySafe.PH application and register to secure a unique QR Code which they can store on their phone or print for physical copy.

QR Codes for non-smartphone user registrants shall be generated by their respective barangays and shall be distributed to where the registrant resides.

Fresnedi said the adoption of StaySafe.PH in Muntinlupa would help in the uniform efforts of the government in contact tracing and in the prevention of transmission of COVID-19.

Under the local ordinance, all establishments in the city are mandated to designate personnel to ensure each individual who will enter their premises possesses a StaySafe.PH unique personal QR Code.

The establishments are also required to provide a scanner and personnel who shall scan and monitor the authenticity of the QR Code of the registrants prior to entry. All customers, visitors, and employees of the public and private establishments shall not be allowed entry unless they present their own QR Code.

Allowing other person to use an individual’s unique QR Code to gain entry into the premises of the covered establishment and intentionally registering more than once for the purpose of possessing more than one unique personal QR Code shall be prohibited. Covered establishments shall be required to transmit a copy of their digital log book to the City Health Office on a daily basis for data integration.

For non-compliant establishments, violators will be charged with P2,000 penalty and suspension of franchise or business permit until violation has been rectified for first offense, P3,000 for second offense, and suspension or revocation of franchise or business permit including P5,000 for third offense.

In case the offender is a government official or employee, the maximum penalty shall be imposed including the filing of administrative, civil, or criminal action.

On December 21, the City Government conducted a training and orientation on the implementation of Staysafe.PH as the official contact tracing system of the city for the operators of malls, supermarkets, and other large-scale stores.

Recently, the Department of the Interior and Local Government issued MC No.2020-129 enjoining local government units to use of StaySafe.PH v.2 application system as the official social distancing, health condition reporting, and contact tracing system that will assist in the government’s response to COVID-19.

Muntinlupa City to strengthen campaign on firecrackers ban, aims three-year zero casualty streak

Following the success of the local ban on firecrackers and achieving zero firecracker-related injuries during the holiday season on 2018 and 2019, the City Government of Muntinlupa is all set to strengthen its campaign aiming for a three-year zero casualty streak.

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi urged the public to strictly observe the on-going ban on firecrackers and pyrotechnic devices, including open pipe mufflers and other modifications, during the Christmas and New Year celebration. Fresnedi said this initiative is also a protective measure to prevent COVID-19 transmission from social gathering among constituents.

DOH Metro Manila Center for Health Development lauded Muntinlupa City as a model LGU in implementing the ban on firecrackers and fireworks in NCR. Muntinlupa is the sole LGU to have reported zero casualty and firecracker-related injury in Metro Manila for two years in a row.

The mayor ordered the Peace and Order Council, in coordination with Muntinlupa City Police Station, to install checkpoints and conduct inspections and clearing operations on thoroughfares and marketplaces to apprehend violators.

Recently, the Muntinlupa City Council passed Ordinance No. 14-092 prohibiting the display and distribution of firecrackers in Muntinlupa as part of its efforts to reduce cases of casualties and harmful effects of pyrotechnic devices to health and the environment.

Violators will be fined with P1,000 up to P5,000 penalty. While commercial establishments selling firecrackers may face revocation of permit and license to operate in pursuant to penalties provided in the ordinance.

Further, mall owners or similar establishments may organize fireworks displays in designated areas upon securing a permit from Bureau of Fire Protection and the Philippine National Police.

While alternative noise-making activities are encouraged, the Muntinlupa Traffic and Management Bureau warned motorists that the use of aftermarket mufflers, or removal of such, which emit excessive loud noise causing disturbances in the holiday season will be apprehended.

As per City Ordinance 04-022 or the Muntinlupa City Traffic Code, motorists shall equip their vehicles with a muffler to prevent unusual noise.

Recently, the Department of Health also discouraged the use of “torotot” and whistles during the holiday season as it poses risk of spreading COVID-19 through the release respiratory droplets from using these instruments. The public is encouraged to use beat drums, blow car horns or use various household items to make noise on New Year’s Eve instead.

To report violations, you may coordinate with the following offices: MTMB (8831-9884), PNP Muntinlupa (8862-2611), BFP Muntinlupa (8842-2201), and Muntinlupa City Department of Disaster Resilience and Management (8925-4351).

As of December 15, Muntinlupa City has 5,025 confirmed cases with 4,814 recoveries, 48 active cases, 163 reported deaths, 40 suspect cases, and 241 probable cases.

Payments can be processed through Bancnet and PESONet partner banks or over-the-counter via ECPAY, Bayad Express and 7-Eleven outlets. Taxpayers can now conveniently pay their taxes at their own time and within the safety of their homes.
