Back to normal in the Negros Occidental provincial offices 1st of June

After more than two years of fighting the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) epidemic, Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson of Negros Occidental announced on Tuesday that the province will be back to normal by June 1.

“We will get back to routine starting June 1,” he told reporters.

The Provincial Capitol offices will begin a five-day workweek this week, and the curfew will be lifted across the province.

“We were warned about this before,” Lacson said of the recent spike in active Covid-19 cases.

According to statistics from the Provincial Incident Management Team, the number of infections increased from 14 on May 24 to 31 on May 25.

The province had 30 active Covid-19 cases as of May 30.

“Of course not; it’s not a matter for concern.” As per yesterday’s status, we’ve dropped again in terms of active cases. “Let’s keep our face masks on,” the governor remarked.

“This is already a problem in terms of behavior.” While we want to move more, we need also continue to protect ourselves by following the basics, such as wearing a face mask and separating themselves,” he added.

On June 3, provincial government employees will report to their offices for the first time since April 16 last year, when Lacson approved a new four-day workweek schedule as part of the steps to limit Negrense migration due to Covid-19.

Capitol-based offices were only open Monday through Thursday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and were closed on Fridays.

On Aug. 28, 2020, the province administration began implementing a four-day workweek as a tactic to combat the spread of Covid-19. Employees were then reverted to a five-day work week on November 9 of the same year.
