The province of Camarines Norte in the Bicol Region remains COVID-19 free and the key to their success is discipline.
As the country continues to face the COVID-19 pandemic, the province of Camarines Norte is proud that they remain to be COVID-19 free. With their strict measures and protocols in place, the local officials said they credit their success to their disciplined residents.
Atty. Don Culvera, spokesperson and commander of the Incident Management Team of the province shared with ABS-CBN, “Yung mga kababayan namin dito talagang sumunod sila sa mga instruction and at the same time, kung ano ‘yung mga ipinapatupad namin dito. Disiplinado ‘yung mga tao.”
Even before the declaration of Metro Manila’s enhanced community quarantine, the local government of Camarines Norte had already placed border controls for checkpoints. They imposed a 14-day quarantine to those entering the province.
“So lahat po ng tao dito na pumasok, lumabas ay nabantayan po namin and namonitor. Karamihan ay naisailalim sa 14-day mandatory quarantine. Talagang naisip namin na lahat ng manggagaling sa ibang lugar na papasok sa Camarines Norte is dumaan sa 14-day quarantine,” said Culvera.
Now, the province is under general community quarantine and continues to limit the movements of its people.
“Mas lalo po namin pinahigpit pa rin ‘yung checkpoints sa dalawang borders and sinunod namin yung paggamit po ng quarantine pass. Ibig sabihin, isang tao rin per household ang puwede pa rin lumabas ng bahay para bumili ng pangangailangan. Ang talagang nadagdag lang po ay ‘yung mga empleyado,” he said.
