Work at the Himamaylan City Hall is suspended starting today, Nov. 23, until further notice.
This was disclosed Sunday by Mayor Raymund Tongson, who said that the city hall will be closed for disinfection.
Tongson asked the cooperation of city government employees and his constituents as the lockdown order is in effect, saying that the health and safety of Himamaylanons are of primary importance.
“Please continue praying for our city and our people,” Tongson appealed on his Facebook post. “We apologize to the public for the inconvenience brought by the circumstance,” he added.
Pending the release of the results of the RT-PCR tests of two city hall employees, Tongson said, all officials and LGU personnel are directed to go on quarantine, particularly those who went to the City Treasurer’s Office Saturday, Nov. 21, to claim their salaries, as well as those who came in contact with the staff of the City Mayor’s Office.
Also ordered to go on quarantine are city government employees, who attended the meeting at the Himaya Hall on Friday, Nov. 20.- ETL
