TAGUIG CITES SINGAPORE AS MODEL FOR ECONOMIC RECOVERY

City receives face masks from Singapore, Filinvest
Taguig City Mayor Lino Cayetano and the Ambassador of Singapore to the Philippines Gerard Ho met and discussed about economic recovery at SM Aura Office Tower in BGC on Wednesday, September 22.
Taguig City expressed sees Singapore as its model for how the country facilitated its economic recovery in the midst of a pandemic.
Despite the surge of COVID-19 cases and threat to the economy, Taguig has made sure that the confidence level of businesses in the City is still at high. The City was able to collect P10B revenue, which is over its target and exceeded the projections of Bureau of Local Government Finance.
In the same event, Filinvest Land Inc. Director Francis Gotianun turned over a total of 180,000 medical-grade surgical face masks to the Local Government of Taguig as part of the Temasek Foundation’s Stay Masked Program where they donated 2 Million face masks to the Philippines.
Temasek Foundation is the non-profit philanthropic arm of Singapore’s investment company Temasek Holdings which has been partnering with Filinvest in providing donations of medical supplies and accessories to contribute to the country’s fight against COVID-19.
Taguig has vaccinated 242 Filinvest employees and 15 employees from the Embassy of the Republic of Singapore.
Similar to Singapore, Mayor Lino continues to encourage Taguigeños to adapt in the new normal by gradually shifting people’s mindset to living with the virus and develop behavioral changes such as wearing face masks and social distancing.
As of September 20, Taguig has 227 active cases per 100,000 population and the City has been consistent in having the lowest in Metro Manila, compared to the National Capital Region’s average of 259. The City’s numbers remain low despite having conducted 201,318 tests, the most done by any local government.
Taguig has also been consistent in having the lowest Case Fatality Rate at 0.72% compared to NCR’s average of 1.85 percent.

Taguig among pilot cities approved by DepEd once in-person learning resumes in NCR

Taguig City ready for this year’s opening of classes

Taguig City is ready for this year’s opening of classes on Monday, Sept. 13, 2021. The Department of Education has also approved Taguig as one of the pilot cities in Metro Manila to open with in-person learning once this is allowed in the National Capital Region.

With Taguig recently hitting its 1 million COVID-19 jabs administered, the Department of Education has expressed its confidence in the city’s capacity for in-person learning.

Taguig also continues to have the lowest fatality rate with a 308 or 0.78 percent record against 1.90 percent of NCR as of Sept. 11, 2021.

When classes open this week, the local government will utilize a combination of distance learning methods to deliver quality education to its students depending on the students’ and parents’ preferences.

Public school students, in particular, are categorized into two: Hybrid Modular Distance Learning students and Online learning students. Ninety-five percent of the City’s public school students are under the first category. In comparison, the remaining 5 percent belong to the second category, the pilot class for implementing the Dynamic E-Learning program.

Taguig City assembled a group of expert educators and module writers from different foreign and international schools to create the best quality modules for students under the Hybrid Modular Distance Learning.

Meanwhile, online learning students will be using the all-new Taguig Learning Management System (LMS) that will serve as the online portal for students’ academic performance, evaluation results, and assignments.

Taguig is also training its educators to acquire new and advanced multimedia and content creation skills through the City’s version 2 of the Taguig Online Resources and Community Hub (TORCH) Training for Teachers program. The goal is to help teachers make their lessons efficient and effective for students.

In support of the students in the opening of classes, Taguig distributes New Normal Education Package for all Taguigeño students. The package includes a bag, school uniform, P.E. uniform, raincoat, modules, supplies, emergency bag, and emergency kit.

The local government continues its aggressive vaccination to ensure that the City can safely and successfully transition to the new normal such as students attending their face-to-face classes.

TAGUIG CITY HITS 1 MILLION MILESTONE IN COVID-19 VACCINATION

1,015,029 total jabs have been administered as of September 7, 2021!
Taguig City joins Quezon City, Manila, and Caloocan City as the 4th city in the country to hit the 1 millionth mark (total COVID-19 jabs administered) in its vaccination rollout.
Taguig City attributes this milestone to the hard work of every healthcare and essential worker in the City who has largely contributed to contact tracing, vaccination efforts, and Taguig’s continuous implementation of the Prevent-Detect-Isolate-Treat-Reintegrate (PDITR) strategy versus COVID-19.
Alongside the local government’s aggressive vaccination efforts in all vaccination hubs, Taguig will continue to focus on community-based vaccination through the Taguig Mobile Vaccination Bus, Mobile Vaccination Team, and Home Service Vaccination for bedridden citizens. The City will continue to provide fast, safe, and accessible vaccination for every Taguigeño!
Thank you for sharing this milestone with us!

CITY GOVERNMENT TO RELEASE ALMOST 12M IN FINANCIAL AID TO ALL ITS BARANGAYS

ALL Taguig families assured of food packs this ECQ

The Taguig City government will release COVID-19 aid to all its barangays to serve as assistance during the enhanced community quarantine. Each barangay will receive P250,000 which they can use to purchase additional food packs for their constituents. This is on top of the regular City Aid being released by the LGU to its barangays.
The barangay assistance is apart from the almost 300,000 relief packs being distributed by the City to its citizens. The food packs contain rice, canned goods, coffee, energy drinks and instant noodles. As of August 8, around 210,000 families have already received their food packs.
“We have allotted for ALL Taguig families, regardless of economic standing to receive food packs from the local government,” Mayor Lino said.
The City Aid and food packs are apart from the cash assistance provided by the national government, for which the City has already made preparations for immediate disbursement.
Mayor Lino also noted that the City will focus on ramping up vaccination and enhancing the city’s testing, contact tracing and hospital capacity to control the transmission of the highly contagious Delta variant.
The Taguig City Government continues to find ways to further protect each Taguigeño as the country continues its fight against COVID-19 and its effects.

TAGUIG CITY STARTS DISTRIBUTION OF STAY-AT-HOME FAMILY FOOD PACKS

 

The City Government of Taguig started its house-to-house distribution of Stay-at-Home family food packs even before the declaration of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in the National Capital Region (NCR).
The distribution was in anticipation of the ECQ from Aug. 6 to Aug. 20 following the Department of Health’s confirmation of the local transmission of the highly contagious Delta variant in the Philippines.
“We guarantee you that the needs of every family will be taken care of. We will make sure that assistance from both local and national government will be distributed to Taguigeños,” Mayor Lino Cayetano had said in a previous speech.
Each food pack includes rice, canned goods, coffee, energy drinks and instant noodles, good for consumption for three to four days.
Earlier, Mayor Lino urged unvaccinated Taguigeños to take the opportunity to avail of the city’s free vaccination  during the ECQ to ensure they are protected.
“Our vaccination sites are open and our frontliners are ready to accommodate you. I would like to ask for your cooperation, please register to TRACE and get vaccinated,” Mayor Lino said. He also urged Taguigeños to continue following health and safety protocols.
As soon as the ECQ takes effect, only authorized persons outside residences, which the national government has said include those planning to get vaccinated in vaccination hubs, are allowed to leave their homes.
“We are ready and we will always take care of each other in Taguig,” Mayor Lino said.
