Community Guidelines for COVID-19: Protocols for Prevention and Mitigation

Updated: Aug 24

Local government units and communities all over the Philippines are continuously adapting and adjusting to the evolving COVID-19 situation in their localities as the cases continue to pile up each day. While national and local authorities struggle to limit the stop of the coronavirus, individuals and communities are encouraged to stay updated with the latest information and promote healthful practices that will help contain the spread or alleviate the situation in their areas. 

What can I do to protect my community from COVID-19?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), communities can effectively slow the spread of COVID-19 through “community mitigation activities.” Since COVID-19 can be spread by asymptomatic carriers, the risk of transmission is not only high but also difficult to determine. Thus, it is highly recommended to do COVID-19 mass testing (rapid test) to limit community transmission or spread. ISPS offers customizable service packages and can quickly set up COVID-19 testing booths in your neighborhood as well as implement  full-scale environmental disinfection through misting and bio-fogging.
