TACLOBAN CITY- In order to improve and standardize the COVID-19 surveillance activity in the city, Mayor Alfred S. Romualdez signed Executive No. 2020-07-026 or “An Executive Order Institutionalizing the Tacloban City COVID-19 Surveillance, Contact Tracing, Analysis and Networking (SCAN) System” last July 1, 2020.
To be implemented city-wide, this system collects and analyses the name, address, and contact details of any individual in Tacloban, including permanent or temporary residents, transients, and tourists so that public health officers can use the same for COVID-19 responses.
Registration can be done through the following methods (1)-via the Tacloban Safe City Application ;(2) via the Barangay unit where an individual resides; and (3) through the border control points for non-resident individuals.
Moreover, all government, non-government offices, business establishments, and industries in Tacloban are encouraged to install the Tacloban Safe City Application in order to regulate the entry of customers, clients, and other individuals in their respective premises.
The executive order, which is set to take effect on July 16, 2020, emphasized that all information collected will be used by the Local Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit of the City Health Office and the Department of Health for public health concern purposes only.
