Estrañero advised all department heads and employees, as well as the public, that the city hall will be closed on August 24 and 25.

He reminded the public to continue to observe all health protocols, physical distancing, and to stay home as much as possible, especially those vulnerable to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), such as minors, senior citizens, pregnant women, and immune-compromised persons.
