Last Updated on September 18, 2020 02:04 PM

Starting September 18, 6 PM until September 30, the following areas in Barangay Santa Ana shall be placed under an expanded Localized Community Quarantine:

1. Pulong Kendi 2
2. Samasipat
3. Faculty Street
4. Romantic Street

This move was based on the recommendation of Taguig CEDSU after its latest available data still has not identified the source of the transmission in the area nor have clear identifiers that the spread of the disease has been controlled.

In order to further isolate and contain the virus, the City Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance Unit (CEDSU) and the Quarantine and Containment Management Team (QCMT) recommended the following:

1. Inclusion of additional streets or areas to be declared under LCQ based on the latest available data
2. Stricter implementation of quarantine protocols in order to limit the movement of residents
3. Implementation of a more aggressive strategy on community testing and continuous active case finding

Taguig is among the cities in the National Capital Region with the lowest number of active cases per population. The City also has the lowest number of fatalities due to COVID-19 and has the lowest attack rates. This is due to the City Government’s aggressive actions such as implementing localized community quarantine to contain areas where outbreaks are occurring.
