Isabela: 214 new Covid cases; new ‘bubble’ set

>> Saturday, April 3, 2021

CITY OF ILAGAN -- Isabela recorded 214 new Covid-19 cases, raising the number of active infections to 976 as of March 29.
Most of cases were in Santiago City and Roxas, Jones, and Mallig towns.
    Following this, the provincial government began its own “bubble” on March 29 while shifting to stricter general community quarantine (GCQ) until April 15, officials said.
    Lawyer Constante Foronda, provincial inter-agency task force focal person, said the bubble set-up would last only until April 5, “unless further extended, modified, or withdrawn.”
    Isabela’s bubble restricts travel in and out of the province except for essential purposes. Isabela was previously under modified community quarantine.
    “No need for panic buying or alarm,” Foronda said.
    He added drug stores, hospitals, and businesses giving essential goods and services would remain open.
Isabela Gov. Rodolfo Albano III said measures under the GCQ included  ban on mass gatherings and dine-in or al fresco for restaurants.
    The curfew will run from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.
    The liquor ban was imposed again.
    In Ilagan, five areas, including two posh subdivisions, were placed on lockdown from March 26-31 due to spike of Covid-19 cases.
    Under lockdown were Capitol Hills Subdivision in Barangay Alibagu, Francisca Village Subdivision in Barangay Baligatan, Purok 3 in Fugu, Purok 1 in San Vicente, and Purok 1 in Arusip.
    Mayor Josemarie Diaz  ordered prohibition of operations of resorts, swimming pools, gatherings at rivers and picnic areas, and cockfights during the Holy Week or March 29 to end April 4.
