In the Facebook post of Mandaue City’s PIO, they reminded the public that you could be infected by the virus with direct contact of the person, who had already contracted the virus through droplets and not through air transmission.

If going outside of the house refrain from touching unnecessary things or if doing so immediately wash your hands with water or alcohol to avoid the spread of the virus or get infected by the virus unknowingly.

As more businesses will resume on June 1, 2020, more people will be seen on the streets to go to work or to get home from work, the city is again reminding everyone to practice the “new normal” when outside of their homes and that is to practice social distancing, wearing of masks at all times and by regularly washing their hands.

“Mandaue City will downgrade its status on June 1, 2020. However, we should remember that we are still under COMMUNITY QUARANTINE. Meaning, our movements should still be limited and be careful when going out,” the Mandaue City PIO posted on its Facebook page.
