BAGUIO CITY-- The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Cordillera is reinforcing the capacities of its field offices and local government units (LGUs) for the implementation of zoning containment strategy against coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).

“The Zoning Containment Strategy (ZCS) can also be used to efficiently implement Covid-19 National Action Plan thru the Prevent, Detect, Isolate, Treat, Reintegrate and Mainstream (PDITRM) Strategy,” said Marlo Iringan, DILG-Cordillera Regional Director today.

He said that the recently concluded video conference on ZCS, puts the emphasis on the importance of limiting the movement of people while contact tracing and testing are done as a strategic approach to stem the spread of the virus in the community as soon as it has been detected.

RD Iringan further explained that areas are classified into four zones based on set parameters: the Critical Zone refers to the areas where the initial number of cases or several clustering of cases have been identified within the past seven days.

The Containment Zone or areas without new cases but are adjacent to a geographic unit categorized as Critical Zone, the Buffer Zone which refers to the areas without new cases but are adjacent to areas categorized as Containment Zone.

 On the other hand, all remaining areas without new cases not categorized as Containment Zone or Buffer Zone are classified as Areas Outside Buffer Zones.

Meanwhile, LGOO V Alfreiner F. Partido, Zoning Containment Strategy focal person of the Local Government Capability Development Division (LGCDD) said that immediate and proactive response of the LGU is crucial to the entire chain of containment strategy which involves contact tracing, testing and treating of patients and close contacts.

“This will also equip the LGUs in safeguarding the health and safety of the residents and ensure that the local economic activities in the concerned area are unhampered,” he said. (PMTG/DILG-CAR)

BAGUIO CITY— Relentless contact tracing is vital to the government’s campaign against the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19), an official said on Thursday.

The Department of the Interior and Local Government Regional Director, Marlo Iringan said that the government aims to quickly and effectively identify potential carriers of the disease to isolate them from crowded communities and halt the rise in the number of new infections, hence the conduct of Contact Tracing Teams (CTTs) training is a must.

This is the primary reason why the Department, in partnership with the DOH, PNP, and the City of Baguio, endeavor to train all the members of the CTTs in the region.

“Rest assured that continuous capability building/orientations, not only on contract tracing but also on other policies, shall be conducted to boost the government’s campaign against covid-19 pandemic in the region,” he said.  

He also said that all LGUs are advised to increase the number of CTTs to do contact tracing for all persons with known exposure to Covid-19 patients. These teams will also monitor and report daily the status of suspect and probable Covid-19 cases of family members with known contact to a confirmed case to mitigate possibility of contagion.

RD Iringan also underscored that the main focus for LGUs should be the PDITRM steps: to Prevent, Detect, Isolate, Treat, Reintegrate and Mainstream in accordance with the National Strategy to Defeat Covid-19..

The DILG is the lead agency in contact tracing pursuant to IATF Resolution No. 25. On April 24, 2020, the DILG issued memorandum circular 2020-077 directing LGUs to establish LGU Task Force against COVID-19, including the Contact Tracing Team. (PMTG/DILG-CAR)

BAGUIO CITY— Some 63 former rebels (FRs), and 124 mass supporters to the “revolutionary movement” of the CPP/NPA/NDF in the region have received financial assistance amounting to PHP15 million as a benefit under the government’s Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP).

“As of today, a total of 63 FRs and 124 ‘Militia ng Bayan” were given financial assistance under the  E-CLIP program which is in line with President Rodrigo Duterte’s advocacy in reintegrating former rebels (FR’s) back to society, and help improve their living conditions,” said Local Government Operations Officer (LGOO) IV Trisha Marie A. Dogup, ECLIP Focal Person of Department of the Local and Interior Government-CAR in a teleconference today.

With the PHP15 million financial assistance given, PHP2.7 million were immediate assistance; PHP2.7 million were livelihood assistance, PHP6.4 million were firearms remuneration and PHP3.2 million for reintegration assistance.

She said that the government’s commitment to deliver E-CLIP benefits will never falter, even in the advent of health crisis.
Dogup added that the reintegration of the FRs in mainstream society will be monitored by the government, particularly their safety as well as those of their families.

She also extended the invitation for other rebels still in the mountains to come down and avail of the re-integration program of government.

The DILG  as implementing agency of E-CLIP, entitles a former rebel to receive immediate assistance of PHP15,000; livelihood assistance, PHP50,000; and firearms remuneration, that is double the cost valuation of turned-in firearms.

Other assistance such as PhilHealth enrollment; registration to government entities; healing and reconciliation initiatives, shelter, legal, medical and employment assistance may be provided by partner agencies.  

A reintegration assistance of PHP21,000 is also provided to the processing/receiving unit/s for the subsistence or meal cost of FRs who have been placed under the protection of government troops while processing their other benefits under the E-CLIP.

55 Locally Stranded Individuals (LSIs) from Apayao, Baguio City, Ifugao, Kalinga and Mt. Province have arrived safely in their respective provinces through the Hatid Tulong Initiative (HTI) Batch 2 program of the government last July 26-28, 2020.

The HTI is a government-wide effort program led by the Presidential Management Staff (PMS) to provide transportation assistance to LSIs stranded in the National Capital Region (NCR) and nearby areas during the implementation of Enhanced Community Quarantine in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 on March 15, 2020.

“These are trying times for everyone and we are happy that our LSIs are able to arrive home safely. We would like to ensure the public that there shall be proper coordination between the local government units (LGUs) and the individuals throughout the process. We also remind our returning individuals as well as the general public to be compliant with the health protocols and guidelines to minimize the spread of the virus and to ensure the safety of the provinces,” says DILG Cordillera Regional Director Marlo Iringan.

The 55 LSIs from the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) have undergone rapid tests as a requirement during the Grand Send Off at the Rizal Memorial Stadium, Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) Ground, Malate, Manila last July 26, 2020.

HTI had set up a One Stop Shop at the PSC ground premises to facilitate the rapid test and processing of travel authority. LSIs who tested positive in the rapid tests were immediately isolated and will undergo swab testing for revalidation. Fortunately, all LSIs bound for CAR tested negative in the rapid test.

Although cleared to travel at the Grand Send Off in Manila, LSIs were strictly subjected to health quarantine protocols in their receiving local governments. They are now undergoing the 14-day quarantine in the quarantine facilities. The first batch with 47 LSIs availed the program last July 6, 2020.
