My sincerest appreciation and gratitude to all our modern unsung heroes for all the sacrifices and dedication that you continue to demonstrate to keep Bislig City and our people safely guarded and free from COVID-19 crisis.

All our concerted efforts geared towards protecting the health and safety of everyone on the community paid off.

Defeating the COVID-19 pandemic needs cooperation and shared understanding and strict adherence to the rules and guidelines set by our medical experts and authorities. Frontliners are working day-in, day-out for the welfare of the people.

Bislig City is now being placed under the General Community Quarantine (GCQ) as per issued E.O. No. 30 which took effect last May 1, 2020. As a result of our timely and effective preventive protocols implemented early as February, our city had zero reported COVID-19 case, hence for us to be included as one of the low-risk areas all over the Philippines.

May all our efforts not be put to waste as we navigate the "new normal" life. This is not yet the time to relax and let our guards down.

While adopting to the new normal through E.O. No. 30 series of 2020, we must double our efforts. I am still encouraging everyone to "STAY AT HOME" unless necessary, be healthy, observe social/physical distancing, proper hygiene and hand washing, always wear face mask and follow rules set by the government.

As your Mayor, I appeal for your support, understanding and cooperation.

Together, we will get through this COVID-19 pandemic.

Safety of everyone is our utmost priority.

God bless our nation.

God bless Bislig City.

God bless our people.
