Mayor Benjamin Magalong reminded Baguio residents experiencing symptoms of the Covid-19 to observe precautionary measures to avoid passing on the virus to family members and friends.
“If we are experiencing the known symptoms of Covid like colds, fever, itchy or painful throat, diarrhea, and loss of smell and/or taste, we must be responsible enough to protect our family, friends, workmates, and others around us from getting infected,” he said.
Magalong said a symptomatic person must immediately quarantine himself by staying in a separate room or space and observing the basic preventive measures like wearing face masks, observing personal hygiene, disinfection, physical distancing, and ensuring proper ventilation.
“Avoid eating with family members and sharing utensils,” he advised.
If going out of residence cannot be helped, then one must avoid crowds, wear mask and shield, observe physical distancing, avoid confined spaces and close contact conversations.
