Mayor Evelio Leonardia reminded Bacolodnons not to celebrate prematurely despite the de-escalation of Bacolod City to Alert Level 1.

“Let us always remind ourselves that COVID is still here. We still need to use face masks because it is still a necessity under the circumstance,” Leonardia said Tuesday, March 1.

“Let’s not prematurely disregard all these protocols because even in Alert Level 1, there are IATF guidelines that we need to follow,” Leonardia said while at the oath-taking rites of the new officers of the Negros Press Club.

Aquilino “Boy” Ciocon of RMN-DyKB is the newly elected NPC president, while Rey Siason (RPN-DyKB) is the vice president, Adrian Nemes (SunStar Bacolod) – secretary, Henceboy Cestina (DYRL) – treasurer and Elsie Jolingan (RPN-DyKB) – auditor.

Leonardia called on residents to continue to observe minimum health protocols so that the city can sustain its lowest community quarantine classification.

“Vaccination is our way to salvation,” the mayor added, stressing the importance of getting jabbed and being protected against COVID-19.*
