Albay Rep. Grex Lagman says province closes borders to remain COVID free
All areas of the country are scrambling to keep out COVID 19, and Albay is hoping to keep its status of zero cases by closing its borders.
Albay Vice Gov. Grex Lagman said on Faceebook that checkpoints have been set up at its borders.
All possible entry points whether by land, sea, or air are restricted, he said.
He thanked the people manning the checkpoints, as well as the barangay health workers, doctors, nurses and allied health professionals on the frontlines at the hospitals.
With a unified effort, Albay could keep out the virus!
“Albay is still Covid-19 free. To maintain this status, Albay has closed her borders effective midnight of March 18.
Entry of persons to the province, particularly the Albay-Camarines Sur border; the Tiwi, Albay-Cam Sur border and the Albay-Sorsogon border, including all possible entry points by land, air and sea shall be restricted.
Maraming salamat po sa mga nasa checkpoints sa 15 municipalities and 3 cities ng Albay. Saludo rin po kame sa ating mga barangay health workers, doctors, nurses and allied health professionals on the frontlines at sa mga public and private hospitals!” Lagman posted.
