Quezon City councilor Winnie Castelo will temporarily stop visiting barangays in the city’s second district amid the rapid rise in COVID-19 cases in recent weeks.

In a Facebook post on Monday, March 8, Castelo said only the food banks he started will continue for now.

“Pansamantala natin ihihinto ang mga barangay activities dahil sa pagtaas ng kaso COVID19 cases sa Metro Manila. Mga diaper ihahatid ng staff na naka PPE at iiwan sa tapat ng bahay,” he said.

Prior to the announcement, Castelo regularly went around communities with his wife, Rep. Precious Castelo, to distribute relief and livelihood items. The couple also held a mass wedding recently with health and safety protocols in place.

Castelo urged the public to be vigilant so they will not catch COVID-19.

“Ingat lahat at may second wave ng virus ngayon. God bless us all,” he said.
