CARMONA, Cavite – The municipal government here will implement an online appointment system for its services starting Monday, May 18, as the town allows offices and select industries to resume operation under general community quarantine (GCQ).
The online appointment system aims to maintain social distancing measures to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) as the town eases a few lockdown measures.
Some of the services available through online appointments include the processing of documents such as Mayor’s Clearance, Mayor’s Permit, DTI business name registration, Municipal Civil Registry documents, and building permits.
While the Municipal Health Office (MHO) advises residents to set an appointment for transactions related to sanitary permits and medical certificates, it will accept walk-in clients for out-patient consultation, dental consultation, laboratory examination, and exhumation permit processing.
Residents can set online appointments anytime between 6 a.m. to 5 p.m., at least a day before their intended visit.
Walk-in guests will still be accommodated, but those with online appointments will be prioritized.
Those who don’t have access to the internet can proceed to their respective barangay offices to set a schedule.
Carmona has recorded four COVID-19 cases as of 5:30 p.m. May 15, with one admitted, one recovered, and two patients under strict home isolation.
