Bacolod City Vice Mayor El Cid Familiaran, who is currently serving as acting mayor and chairs the Bacolod City Inter-Agency Task Force Against Novel Coronavirus, said they will soon release protocols for hotel and pension house establishments in the city to combat the  2019 novel coronavirus (nCoV).
The task force previously met with hotel managers and their representatives last week to discuss measures against nCoV, especially for hotel clients with a travel history to nCoV-affected countries.
According to Familiaran, a draft of the protocol will be deliberated by task force members and partner government agencies. Following approval, he said they are preparing to conduct trainings for barangay health emergency response teams in all 61 city barangays.
Last week, the Bacolod City Sangguniang Panlungsod ratified a resolution approving P10 million for the task force. The legislation, which was crafted by the City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (CDRRMC), was passed on the condition that the CDRRMC submit a list of equipment and program./DGB, WDJ
