BAGUIO CITY- Mountain Province has no recorded cases of coronavirus disease (Covid-19) since 14 September 2020.

According to Provincial Department of Health Office (PDOHO) head Judith Dao-as, the last recorded case was on 13 September.  The patient was an overseas Filipino worker (OFW) repatriate.

She said that Mountain Province has a total record of 16 confirmed cases with no deaths, and all of them had recovered based on their latest Covid test results.

“We are again COVID-free,” announced the provincial government of Mountain Province. The province has ten municipalities. The Provincial Health Office listed 301 suspect cases but all of them tested negative.

But Dao-as said the province is still strictly monitoring the arrivals of locally stranded individuals (LSIs) coming from other places. She said the different municipal government units are making sure that the LSIs are confined in quarantine areas and must complete the required quarantine days.

Despite this development, the province remains closed to tourists.
