Addressing the need to FIND, ISOLATE AND CURE all possible COVID-19 positive in the City, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Angeles City Office team, headed by City Director Martin Porres B. Moral, oriented the 66 newly-hired contact tracers on October 2, 2020 at the Conference Hall, Barangay Hall, Barangay Balibago, Angeles City.

 Newly-hired contact tracers will augment the City's current contact tracing team that will help find all possible contact of the Covid-19 positive.

During the orientation, Punong Barangay Rodelio H. Mamac delivered his inspirational message encouraging the contact tracers to value this opportunity given to them in helping the government flattened the curved of COVID-19.

"Ano ba ang pwede mong gawin sa bayan mo, hindi ano ang pwedeng gawin ng bayan mo sayo. Kung ako ang tatanungin pwede namang kumuha ang gobyerno ng mga tambay o tsismosa sa bawat barangay na pwedeng maghanap ng mga nakasalamuha ng covid-19 positive dahil sa familiarity ng lugar. Pero ang ginawa ng gobyerno ay pinili kayo dahil naniniwala ang gobyerno sa inyo, sa kakayahan ninyo, sa gagawin ninyong dedikasyon sa trabaho ngayung kayo ay parte ng government service. Huwag kayung matakot sa magiging trabaho ninyo dahil may mga minimun health protocol para masigurado ng pamahalaan na hindi kayo magkaroon ng covid-19" PB Mamac said.

CD Moral in his message congratulated the newly-hired contact tracers. "Sa inyong nandirito ngayun at napili ng aming ahensya para makatulong sa siyudad ng Angeles, kami po ay taos pusong nagpapasalamat sa inyo dahil tinatanggap nyo ang hamon ng ating lipunan. Mula sa araw na ito kayo ay kabilang na sa aming pamilya, ang DILG, upang maging solusyun sa agarang pagtuklas o pagtukoy ng mga taong naging close contact ng mga positibo sa Covid-19" CD Moral said.

The City Health Office (CHO) will also brief them in a separate session about the historical overview of COVID-19 in Angeles City.
