Capitol’s food terminal to reopen tomorrow

The fish and vegetable section of the Food Terminal Market of Negros Occidental (FITMON) at the North Capitol Road in Bacolod City will reopen tomorrow, November 26, after those tagged as close contacts of a job order worker, who succumbed to COVID-19, tested negative for the virus, Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz said today, November 25.

The fish and vegetable section was shutdown after a 45-year-old job order worker at the facility succumbed to COVID-19 Monday morning, November 23.

All 19 security guards and employees at the facility tested negative, results released today showed, Diaz said.

The facility has already been disinfected and is safe for reopening, he added.

Lucille Gelvolea, head of the provincial government’s Economic Enterprise Development Department, said the 45-year-old JO did not manifest any symptoms of COVID-19 but collapsed at his residence on Sunday, November 22.

His family said he was admitted at the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Region Hospital and went into a coma prior to his death Monday, she added.*
