In response to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in Metro Manila, the Philippine Fisheries Development Authority – Central Office (PFDA-CO) located in Diliman, Quezon City continues to conduct intensive disinfection activities on April 9, to bolster its fight against the spread of COVID-19.
General Services Division - Administrative Services Department led the PFDA - Central Office disinfection activities.
On the other hand, PFDA – Navotas Fish Port Complex (PFDA-NFPC) conducted its monthly general cleaning on April 10 to assure safety and security of everyone in the port’s vicinity against the virus.
Aside from the PFDA - NFPC management, volunteers from various market traders associations and groups also participated in the event.
During the time of disinfection in PFDA - NFPC, some market operations were temporarily halted, particularly the night trading, but port management guaranteed that the price of fish will not be affected by the momentary closure of the markets and that there is enough supply of fish for everyone.
As the government puts NCR under a less strict Modified ECQ on April 12, PFDA-CO will continue to fully operate with limited workforce on-site and carry out unhampered services and operations for its stakeholders under work-from-home set up to assure the safety of its employees, clients, and the public.
PFDA continues to remind everyone to follow minimum public health standards against COVID-19. Amid the easing of quarantine protocols in NCR, proper use of face mask and shield, physical distancing, and frequent hand washing is still highly recommended to avoid the further spread of the virus.
