Balagtas mayor, wife in self-quarantine after testing positive for Covid-19
Balagtas Mayor Eladio Gonzales Jr. and his wife are both in self-quarantine after testing positive for the coronavirus.
The 60-year-old mayor said in a Facebook post that he and his wife were both asymptomatic. He said they took a swab test at the Joni Villanueva Molecular Diagnostic Laboratory in Bocaue town after close contact with an infected person.
“Ito ay pinababatid ko sa inyo sapagkat ako po ay inyong alkalde at tungkulin ko rin na ipaalam ang kalagayang pangkalusugan ng inyong lingkod. Walang dapat itago,” Gonzales said.
“Ako po ay isang senior citizen na, ngunit asymptomatic or walang nararamdamang sintomas. Aking susundin ang mahigpit na payo ng ating municipal health office na sumailalim sa quarantine para sa kaligtasan ng lahat,” he added.
Gonzales urged all personnel of the Balagtas municipal government to get tested.
“Bagaman ang inyong alkalde at mayora ay walang sintomas at maayos ang pangagatawan, ako po ay humihingi ng inyong taimtim na dasal. Gayundin, nawa’y magsilbi itong paalala sa lahat na parating mag-ingat sapagkat ang Covid-19 ay nasa paligid pa rin natin,” he said.
“Isapuso at isaisip ang ating mga health protocols. Sa pagtutulungan ng lahat ng Balagtasenyo, malalagpasan din natin ang pandemyang ito,” Gonzales said.
