As the country braces for the impact of Typhoon Rolly amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis, the Department of Health emphasized the importance of deploying safety officers in evacuation centers to ensure compliance with pandemic protocols.

“Magkaroon po tayo ng safety officers na palagiang hihikayat at saka mag-a-advise sa ating mga komunidad na nasa loob ng evacuation center na kailangan laging naka-mask, kailangan laging naghuhugas ng kamay,” Department of Health spokesperson Maria Rosario Vergeire said in a press briefing.

[Let’s have safety officers who will constantly urge and advise our communities in evacuation centers to wear masks, and wash hands.]

They can also immediately isolate people who develop symptoms, Vergeire added.

Coronavirus transmission is at high risk in crowded areas and deployment of safety officers is one of the ways to mitigate this risk.
