first_imgBY DOMINIQUE GABRIEL BAÑAGABACOLOD City – Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson believes Negros Occidental would still remain under modified general community quarantine (MGCQ) on July 1.During an event yesterday at the provincial Capitol building, Lacson dispelled rumors circulating on social media claiming that the province would be returned to enhanced community quarantine.“I really think MGCQ will still be in effect,” Lacson said.Even though there has been marked rise of COVID-19 cases among recently returned locally stranded individuals (LSIs), Lacson said it is still very small numbers and he is thankful that the National Inter-Agency Task Force gave them a “short-break” from receiving new LSIs.Responding to questions about the province’s economic recovery under the MGCQ, wherein there are still aren’t to many people moving around, Lacson said it is really a question of confidence and if people still doesn’t feel that it is safe, then it is better to stay at home.“As long as the vaccine is [not yet available], I think economic recovery would take a while,” Lacson added./PNlast_img
