The general community quarantine (GCQ) in the province of Leyte will be extended until May 31, a report from the office of the governor said here today.

Leyte Governor Leopoldo Dominico Petilla who presided over the sixth meeting of the coronavirus disease 2019 Inter-Agency Task Force Meeting as chairman, told Manila Bulletin that the IATF has extended the implementation of the GCQ in his province until May 31.

The 86 persons in the list were in close contacts of EV-patient#5 and EV-patient #7, both from Barangay Balao, who tested positive and eventually recovered and are now negative of COVID-19 virus. If ever the 86 in the list will also turn negative, the ECQ implementation in these two barangays will be terminated.

The local executives should inform immediately the rural health units in their jurisdiction and request for the COVID-19 test. The health authorities then are advised to coordinate with the provincial and district hospitals for the testing. Petilla also explained that the extension of the GCQ implementation in his province was also being pushed for the preparation of the the national government’s Balik Probinsya, Bagong Pag-asa Program .
