OPERATIONS and transactions in four municipal halls in Bulacan province have been suspended for seven days from January 13 to 19 after several municipal employees have tested positive for Covid-19.

Thorough sanitation and disinfection are also scheduled to take place in the municipal halls of Angat, San Rafael, Balagtas and Bocaue.

However, medical frontline services, traffic management and rescue will remain accessible to the public to address emergencies in their respective municipalities.

In Meycauayan City, the city government has also suspended the operation and transaction of the Business One Stop Shop which handles business permits, among others.

Meanwhile, at the meeting of the Bulacan Provincial Task Force on Covid-19, Gov. Daniel Fernando continued to call on the chief executives of each local government unit (LGU) and the Bulakenyos to strictly implement the minimum health standard.

"Kailangang maging mapanuri at disiplinado tayo at sumunod sa tagubilin ng IATF dahil ito ang mabisang paraan para makaiwas na magkasakit at upang hindi maparalisa ang serbisyo ng ating mga kaagapay na mga health care workers at kasamang mga LGU," the governor said.

Currently, there are more than 9,000 Covid-19 active cases in Bulacan, which have been placed under Alert Level 3 until January 22.
