Taytay Mayor Joric Gacula suspends classes over COVID 19
Taytay was not covered by President Duterte’s class suspension, but Mayor Joric Gacula has decided to follow the chief executive’s example.
Gacula said on Facebook that classes will be suspended March 11 to 14, and the time would be used to clean and disinfect school premises as part of efforts to prevent the spread of COVID 19.
He asked school officials to coordinate with barangays or the Taytay government to get water tankers for the cleaning operations.
The schools will be disinfected weekly using food grade chemicals and mist blowing machines, he added.
The mayor also reiterated the government’s reminders to avoid touching your face, wash your hands regularly, and practice cough etiquette.
Prayers wouldn’t hurt as well, he added.
Keep the faith but take action!
“I am suspending classes tomorrow March 11 to March 14 in all levels private and public in Taytay , Rizal. This is to pave the way for a thorough cleaning and disinfection of the school premises , the School officials should coordinate with the LGU of Taytay and their respective Brgys if fire trucks / water tankers are needed for their cleaning operations. The PTA’s of the respective schools should be tapped to help in cleaning just like the Brigada Eskuwela and the LGU will do a non stop weekly disinfection using Food Grade Chemicals by Mist Blowing Machines so as not to be harmful to students and teachers as long as the threat exists.
Napa simple pero mahirap gawin, ang wag hawakan ang mukha, mata ,ilong at ganun din ang maghugas ng kamay mayat maya na gamit ang sabon. Pero ito ang tanging panlaban natin para di na kumalat pa ang virus na NCOV 19. Ang masks ay dapat gamitin ng mga may sakit para di sila maka hawa. Malaki ang papel ng magulang sa crisis na ito, ang magulang lang ang pwedeng mag set ng Patakaran o House rules sa bawat Bahay na dapat iwasan humawak sa mukha lalo na at hindi ka naghugas ng kamay mo. Kapag may ubo at sipon o lagnat ang Bata ay wag na natin papasukin sa paaralan. Magiging maunawain ang mga Guro ngayon dahil sa epidemic na ito . Ang information na ito ay dapat ikalat ng lahat ng may kakayahan maibalita ito sa bawat sitio, Barangay, Municipalidad , Ciudad at Lalawigan ng ating bansa. Namamatay din ang virus na nasa lapag mga na natalsikan ng laway at sipon ng infected na tao pagkatapos ng ilang oras o araw . Kaya kung malinis tayo sa Kamay, katawan at kapaligiran ay hindi na ito kakalat at unti unting mawawala ang salot na sakit na ito. Samahan natin ng Panalangin upang lalo tayong maging ligtas. SALAMAT SA DIYOS!!!!” Gacula posted.
