City To Streamline Contact Tracing Versus Delta Variant


The local government of Baguio conducts an orientation to streamline contact tracing process for the contact tracers as a proactive strategy prevent the spread of dreaded COVID 19 Delta variant.

The City’s contact tracing team Ruby Magsino and Dr. Donna Tubera Panes from the City Health Services Office orient the more than 200 contact tracer personnel of the city.

Earlier Mayor Benjamin Magalong on Aug. 9 said to expect the surge in Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases to occur in the city in the next two weeks if not anytime soon.

He said the city would only be able to delay but not prevent the entry of the more contagious variant despite the preventive measures imposed.

Participants of the orientation include 70 BCPO contact tracers, 40 field contact tracers, 30 Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) contact tracers, 32 encoders and 30 members of the City’s Lead Contact Tracing team.

The mayor advised the administrators and managers from the private and public sectors to be ready to reduce their manpower to 30 percent once the spike in the cases starts.  Establishments were also urged to intensify implementation of public health standards and precautionary measures.
