Muntinlupa court placed on lockdown after employee gets COVID-19
The Supreme Court (SC) said on Monday (July 13) that a Muntinlupa City court has been placed on lockdown after an employee tested positive for the COVID-19 disease.
“Muntinlupa City RTC-Br. 205 closed from July 13 to 15, 2020; while court employee/s who came in close contact with the COVID positive employee to undergo home quarantine until July 20, 2020,” the SC said in its Twitter post.
The directive was made by Muntinlupa Regional Trial (RTC) Executive Judge Antonetta Medina in a memorandum she issued.
She explained the move was made after an employee of RTC Branch 205 was tested positive for COVID-19.
With this, the magistrate directed those who have been in contact with the infected employee to undergo swab testing and place themselves under “home quarantinee for 14 days from said date until July 20, 2020.”
