Record showed that the first time Bacolod registered zero COVID case was on March 10, 2021.

Mayor Evelio Leonardia credited Bacolodnons for continued compliance to minimum health protocols despite the city’s de-escalation to Alert Level 1 status.

“We are now under the new normal. But then again, we must remain vigilant because COVID is still here. We have to live with it and adjust to it accordingly and cautiously,” Leonardia said.

He also credited the continued vaccination efforts of the EOC-TF and COVac as more residents receive booster shots as added protection against the virus.
