Manila court, office on lockdown due to COVID-19
The Supreme Court (SC) on Monday (July 13) said a Manila court and an office of the clerk of court have been placed on lockdown after two employees have tested positive for the COVID-19 disease.
“MeTC Manila Br. 30 (located at the Manila City Hall) on lockdown from July 13 to 24, 2020; and MeTC Manila Office of the Clerk of Court (located at Parkview Plaza Building on lockdown from July 13-22, 2020,” the SC said in its Twitter post.
The SC said Manila Metropolitan Trial Court (MeTC) Executive Judge Carissa Anne Manook-Frondozo has already issued a memorandum which ordered the lockdown.
In her memorandum, she explained she ordered the lockdown after an employee from each of the two offices tested positive for the virus.
“This Office reminds all employees of the offices affected that they must undergo self-quarantine within 14 days from direct exposure to the COVID19 positive employees, to minimize or avoid contact with the public during the said period and to conduct contact tracing of all the persons they have come in contact with at the court premises for the last two weeks,” the magistrate instructed.
