Governor Imelda ‘Angging’ Quibranza-Dimaporo welcomes the Honorable Members of the Sangguniang Bayan of the Municipality of Linamon headed by Vice Mayor Rachelle Vienna P. Abundiente to discuss the installation of an Isolation Facility for COVID-19 in their municipality at MIRAIC (Metro Iligan Regional Agro-Industrial Center), owned by the Provincial Government of Lanao del Norte.

As of now and due to the influx of returning Locally Stranded Individuals and Overseas Filipino Workers, the barangays of the Municipality of Linamon does not have an adequate number of beds to cater to these daily arrivals, but one in particular, Barangay Poblacion only has a makeshift isolation facility on a lot owned by the Municipal Government within a residential area.

With this situation, the Sangguniang Bayan humbly requested Governor Angging for the time being to install an isolation facility in MIRAIC, which is located far from residential areas, a perfect place for such a facility.

The Provincial Government of Lanao del Norte strongly supports the efforts of the Municipal and Barangay Governments, especially to actions that help contain the spread of COVID-19, as well as accommodate the incoming LSIs and OFWs for their quarantine period, and to keep the general public healthy, safe and secure.

Governor Angging understands the appeal of the Honorable Members of the Sangguniang Bayan of the Municipality of Linamon and humbly required them to pass a Municipal Resolution for such request, including a letter addressed to the Office of the Provincial Governor through Engr. Jalandoni B. Piti-ilan, the Manager of MIRAIC, for proper coordination and to determine the exact location of the said municipal isolation facility.

In this health crisis, the Provincial Governor sees the need to help and extend assistance to each other, a simple but the best way to support the efforts of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to protect the Filipino people from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The meeting was held at the Governor’s Conference Room, Governor Arsenio A. Quibranza Provincial Government Center, Pigcarangan, Tubod, on July 14, 2020. PIO-LDN
