Talisay Mayor Neil Lizares and some members of his family have tested positive for COVID-19.
“I would like to inform the public that I have been tested positive once again for COVID-19,” Lizares said in a Facebook post Saturday, October 23.
Lizares said he is currently experiencing mild symptoms but it breaks his heart to see that members of his family and household have also tested positive.
His three children and four helpers have also tested positive for COVID-19, Lizares said.
“I would like to reassure everyone that I am taking every step possible to ensure that I stay in good health and will recover again successfully from the virus,” Lizares said.
In September, Lizares also tested positive for COVID-19.
“Please continue to keep me and my family in your prayers for our fast recovery and also for the recovery of all COVID-19 active cases in the City of Talisay,” he added.
He encouraged Talisaynons to get vaccinated and continue to follow all minimum safety standards and health protocols for added safety and protection.*
