THE Taguig City government placed a construction site at Bonifacio Global City (BGC) under lockdown up to July 7 after several workers tested positive for the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).
In a statement late Tuesday, the Taguig city government followed the recommendation of its Safe City Task Force as 27 construction workers showed fever symptoms in the site and were considered as suspected Covid-19 cases.
Among the 27, six tested positive for the virus when their results were released at 11 a.m. on Tuesday.
The city government also ordered its police force and BGC Marshalls to cordon off and secure the construction site.
The Taguig local government unit also added that it would strictly monitor the health and living conditions of the quarantined construction workers, and assist them through their emergency response teams in case of trouble.
Last week, three areas in Lower Bicutan were placed under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) due to a clustering of three or more confirmed Covid-19 cases there.
As of posting time, the city now has 714 confirmed Covid-19 cases, along with 21 deaths and 142 recoveries.
