Salamat kapatid! Camille Villar credits DPWH for Las Pinas’ new COVID-19 isolation facilities


Las Piñas Rep. Camille Villar thanked the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) led by her brother Mark for the newly opened COVID-19 isolation facility built in the city.

The isolation center located at the Goodyear Compound in Barangay Almanza Dos, known as LIGTAS-3, was inaugurated on Monday Nov. 16. It is made of 24 40-foot container vans from DPWH.

“Nagpapasalamat po tayo sa DPWH sa pagpapatayo nitong quarantine facility para sa mga pasyente. Our partnership with government agencies and the private sector is important as we pool our resources collectively to win the fight against the pandemic,” said Villar.

“This will contribute to the cause of decongesting our healthcare facilities as we hope to contain further infections through this dedicated center to COVID patients,” she added.

The isolation facility has a total of 99 rooms with provisions for complete healthcare amenities, air conditioning units, toilets, utilities and proper ventilation. A total of 96 rooms will be used for active COVID-19 cases, while the other rooms will be used as a nurse station and an X-ray room.
