The North Greenhills subdivision in San Juan City has confirmed that three of its residents have been tested positive for COVID-19.
In a March 10 report, the North Greenhills Association (NGA) said three virus carriers have already received hospital treatment and were under quarantine.
The NGA said San Juan Mayor Francis Zamora has assigned one police man and one health worker for each the residents’ homes (two or the infected persons are from the same household)
Vehicle and pedestrian access to the village has been limited while all residents and visitors would undergo temperature check before entry. Construction activities have also been suspended to minimize the entry of outsiders.
“We can also do our own part to minimize the spread of the virus by self-imposed house quarantine as much as you can; practicing good hygiene by washing hands frequently; and wearing a mask and getting a test if one experiences flu-like symptoms,” the NGA said.
“Let’s be considerate towards our fellow neighbors and stay safe by staying home,” it added.
President Joseph Estrada and his wife, former Senator Loi Ejercito, have a house on Polk Street inside North Greenhills.
The San Juan City subdivision is just across Greenhills Shopping Center which has a mosque where two of the earliest confirmed cases of coronavirus were traced.
