Mayor Evangelista checks 42-bed holding area for LSIs


Kidapawan City Mayor Joseph Evangelista inspected Monday, September 14, the 42-bed holding area for locally stranded individuals (LSIs) inside the city gymnasium.

The local chief executive said the LSIs will temporarily stay in the holding area before they transferred in the quarantine isolation facilities.

“Isa lamang sa mga ginagawang paghahanda ng city government ang pagkakaroon ng nabanggit na pasilidad saka-sakaling magkaroon ng pagtaas ng kaso ng Covid-19 sa lungsod,” he said.

He said the Armed Forces of the Philippines also provided five cot beds for LSIs, especially those who will arrive in the city during the wee hours of the night.
