Muntinlupa City Mayor Jaime Fresnedi plans to give incentives to communities which strictly observe health and safety protocols as the number of COVID-19 cases rise among the youth.

Fresnedi, chairperson of the Muntinlupa City Council for the Protection of Children (MCCPC) called for an emergency meeting on August 17 with council members and barangay officials to discuss how to bring down the number of COVID-19 infections.

City Health Officer Dr. Teresa Tuliao said transmission may have occurred among the youth when they play or go outside their homes.

Following the meeting with Fresnedi, MCCPC will submit a resolution recommending the review of existing ordinances on curfew hours and wearing of face masks. The council will also recommend incentivizing the best practices of communities against COVID-19.

Fresnedi also urged the youth and their parents to remain vigilant in observing health protocols even as Metro Manila has shifted to a more relaxed general community quarantine.
