The Regional Peace and Order Council headed by Albay Governor Al Francis C. Bichara conducted its 3rd quarter meeting last July 8, 2020 (Wednesday) at Albay Astrodome, Legazpi City. The meeting was attended by the members of the said council to discuss updates and reports on some important matters which is within the concern of the council.
One of the highlights during the meeting was on the updates of the Department of Health Regional Field Office V on the COVID-19 cases within the region. DOH Bicol has recommended the strict implementation of the quarantine protocols to Locally Stranded Individuals who just arrive in their respected provinces. They also recommended that LSI’s should undergo swab testing as they are alleged to be the one responsible for the significant increase of COVID-19 positive cases in the entire region. Another recommendation from the council is to strengthen and intensify the border control checkpoints between boundaries of Bicol Region and Quezon Province.
