JUST IN | MAYOR RELAMPAGOS CANCELS ARAW NG PANABO CELEBRATION AND OTHER EVENTS DUE TO COVID-19. Read full statement:
I regret to inform you that I shall CANCEL all Araw ng Panabo events on March 1 to 31, 2020, the State of the City Address on March 16, and the PBA Game (San Miguel Beermen vs Meralco Bolts) on March 28 for the reason of public health and safety.
The advisories and news from the national government and the World Health Organization have continually warned our country on the increasing 2019 Corona Virus Disease or COVID-19 outbreak (previously termed as 2019-nCoV ARD). Although there are no confirmed cases in our Region as of today, I am determined to implement precautionary measures in the city of Panabo and follow DOH AND DILG guidelines against the disease.
Therefore, I strongly encourage you to practice self-protection measures and avoid attending crowded places/events and other mass gatherings anywhere. All similar events organized by the barangay and city governments are ordered to halt until further notice. Private organizers are likewise strongly advised to suspend similar events in the city of Panabo.
Proper and accurate information on this matter should only be coming from the Department of Health and the City Government of Panabo in order to avoid panic and misinformation. In addition, I am asking you to participate in the barangay information campaigns spearheaded by the City Health Office on the following days.
“Makuptan ang kadaugan sa Nagkahiusang mga Panaboans”. It is my prayer to our Almighty Father that we shall continue celebrating our cityhood individually as panaboans despite these calamities.
With unity, there is peace. With resiliency, there is hope. With God, there is victory.
