City market goes thru massive disinfection
by Julie G. Fianza / PIO

MARKET CLEAN-UP VS COVID-19 -- Personnel of City Hall offices in partnership with the Baguio Water District, Bureau of Fire Protection, Baguio Market Vendor’s Alliance, and three barangays within the City Public Market joined hands in the massive clean-up drive and disinfection at the city market as part of continuing efforts to remind the public to always be on guard against the threats of Covid-19 infection. The City Public Market was closed earlier last week to pave the way for the clean-up drive. -- Harley Palangchao

The Baguio City Public Market shall be regularly flushed and disinfected after last week’s three consecutive half-days of massive clean-up.

The disinfection of surfaces, stalls, alleys and perimeter was prompted by the clustering of Covid-19 cases in a certain barangay, supposedly traced from market workers and linked to family members.

Personnel wearing safety gear flushed the areas from blocks 3 and 4 to the adjoining sections. Sanitation teams also used manual sprayers in corners and alleys.

Market stalls were evacuated and thoroughly disinfected while booths in business establishments were closed, their frontage of sidewalks scrubbed with chlorine solution or soapy water.

Those who are scheduled to buy at the market per district were advised to finish shopping early or buy at satellite markets or sari-sari stores for their basic needs.

The cleanup was a concerted effort of the Market Superintendent’s Office, Public Order and Safety Division, City Disaster and Risk Reduction Management Office, the General Services Office, Baguio City Police Office, volunteer groups, and concerned barangays.

During the Inter-Agency Task Force meeting earlier, Department of Health OIC Regional Director Amelita Panglinan suggested that rolling stores be deployed in the barangays to decongest the public market and minimize exposure or interaction with persons who may be infected with the Covid-19 virus.

Mayor Benjamin Magalong said groceries and supermarkets also need to be disinfected.
