To preserve the highest health protocol, the first action was to distribute face masks to the mentioned resident before the major event began.
The second event was the grand Pulong-pulong and distribution of leaflets for the purpose of disseminating important information, particularly the status of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the CSP team reminded them to maintain and value the government’s health protocol. At the same time, the CSP team discussed the Barangay Ordinance for the community’s safety.
