[아시아뉴스통신=페이 기자] The Hall of Justice in Marawi City will start implementing strict health protocols starting Monday due to the increasing number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the locality. Executive Judge Wenida Papandayan said on Sunday that no walk-in inquiries, requests and transactions shall be entertained, which is also pursuant to the Supreme Court Administrative Circular No. 41-2020.
Visitors and other court users who have queries, requests and transaction should first call the hotline numbers and connect to the email addresses of the concerned court or office “in order to be guided”. The wearing of face mask is also strictly required. On Aug. 4-7, the Hall of Justice was closed for intensive disinfection after the husband of one of the staff of the Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) tested positive for Covid-19 while being admitted at Amai Pakpak Medical Center as regular dialysis patient.
Marawi City Health Officer Dr. Ali Dalidig said the PAO staff, who was exposed to her husband, reported to the office on Aug. 3, the day the latter’s swab test result was released. The children and 13 fellow employees of the PAO staff were subjected to rapid diagnostic tests. Although they were found non-reactive, they were advised to undergo a strict home quarantine.
