Mayor Toby Tiangco: “Sa mga mahilig po magpa-deliver ng pagkain, magsakripisyo po muna tayo. Hindi po natin alam paano ito inihanda. Di tulad ng bagay o groceries, di po natin ito pwedeng i-disinfect para masigurong safe ito at walang virus. Kaya hanggang maaari, lutong bahay po muna tayo. Mas masarap, mas matipid at mas safe.”

NAVOTAS City Mayor Toby Tiangco reminded residents who have a habit of purchasing items through home deliveries to take necessary precautions during this time of pandemic.
 The mayor advised his constituents and the public to avoid, if possible, to order items or even foods through home deliveries after famous comedian Michael V or “Bitoy” disclosed that he might have contracted the virus from deliveries.

The city chief executive said that in instances that deliveries are inevitable, he reminded the public to disinfect, not only the external part of the package, but also its content.

“Sa mga mahilig po magpa-deliver ng pagkain, magsakripisyo po muna tayo. Hindi po natin alam paano ito inihanda. Di tulad ng bagay o groceries, di po natin ito pwedeng i-disinfect para masigurong safe ito at walang virus. Kaya hanggang maaari, lutong bahay po muna tayo. Mas masarap, mas matipid at mas safe,” Tiangco said.

The mayor also advised his constituents not to risk their personal health and of their families and avoid being too confident.
