‘Kalingang Quezon City’ report 

Belmonte said that as of April 16, the city government had provided cash aid to more than 23,500 tricycle, jeepney, and taxi drivers under its “Kalingang QC” program.

She noted her administration has given financial assistance to tricycle and jeepney drivers, market vendors, solo parents, and persons with disabilities (PWDs) whose livelihoods have been affected by the ECQ.

Quezon City (QC) community-based testing

A total of 140 tests were conducted on April 16 by the city’s community-based testing service, those done by the local government hospitals, and the testing conducted by the QCESU.

She explained those who want to be tested for COVID-19 should proceed to their respective barangay health centers where preliminary interviews and evaluation will be done prior to the scheduling for testing.

Disinfection guidelines in public areas

Belmonte has approved the recommended guidelines on the preferred method for cleaning and disinfection of critical infrastructure and the environment amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the recommendation of the city’s incident command team, Belmonte said that the guidelines cover public outdoor spaces including markets, parks, roads, open spaces, and vehicles used to transport COVID-19 cadavers.

All personnel conducting disinfection must wear appropriate personal protective equipment.
