Digos City Mayor Josef Cagas instructed the City Information Office to conduct a house-to-house information dissemination campaign on vaccination.

Cagas said the house-to-house drive is necessary, given the low turnout of vaccinees.

“They need to do the house-to-house campaign to further entice people on the goodness of vaccines to one’s health,” he said.

As the city is under stricter policies to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), Cagas said barangay officials and tanods (watchmen) have been deputized to issue citation tickets to violators of minimum public health standards.

On June 14, he issued Executive Order 24, series of 2021, placing the entire City of Digos under general community quarantine until June 27.

Cagas also imposed a “No Movement Every Sunday” policy, particularly on June 20 and June 27, under the Digos City COVID-19 Advisory Guidelines 6, series of 2021.

“We can beat this unseen virus.”

“I am asking everyone to practice discipline among themselves. With this, we can beat this unseen virus,” he added.

“A P5-million facility with a 40-bed capacity is already being constructed.”

Meanwhile, Cagas said a P5-million facility with a 40-bed capacity is already being constructed.

“This is in addition to our existing 80-bed capacity isolation facility. We are hoping that the cases will no longer rise and will not overwhelm our beds,” he said.

As of June 24, Digos City had a total of 467 active cases out of the 1,589 total cases. About 1,088 have recovered while 34 succumbed to the disease.
