Five residential areas in Barangay San Isidro, Parañaque City, were placed under “granular and calibrated” lockdown starting Wednesday, March 24, after several residents contracted the dreaded coronavirus disease (COVID-19).  

Barangay officials said the affected areas are Greenheights Village, Matatdo Homes, Krause Village, Nersan Compound, and Camella Homes 3.

During the duration of the lockdown from March 24 to 26, only Authorized Persons Outside Residence (APORs) will be allowed to go out, according to the barangay’s Facebook post.  

Based on the city’s report on Tuesday, March 23, Barangay San Isidro recorded the most number of active cases among the 16 barangays with 123. 

The city, on the other hand, logged a total of 994 active cases with 144 new cases.

Parañaque City Mayor Edwin Olivarez as well as Congressman Eric Olivarez, City Administrator Fernando Soriano and Barangay Chairman Noel Japlos, together with police personnel and other officials, personally went to the area on the first day of the lockdown to ensure its smooth implementation.

According to the city officials, food packs will be distributed by the local government to those affected by the lockdown.

Sanitation and disinfection is also being done in the barangay through the help of the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO).
