The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) is asking the public’s cooperation in fighting the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) infections due to the possible reinstatement of the Alert Level 2 in Metro Manila. 

NCRPO director Maj. Gen. Felipe Natividad asked the public to follow self-discipline by being mindful of their activities and in observing health protocols, such as wearing face masks and observing physical distancing.

“The [NCRPO] remains on its stand to continuously observe and impose health standard protocols following the uptick of Covid-19 cases to 30% from June 6-12, 2022, last week,” Natividad said.

“We are mandated and obliged to enforce the laws and regulations of the duly constituted authorities accordingly.  Thus, we solicit the cooperation of the public to be mindful and observe minimum health standard protocols, especially when in crowded places. Implement self-imposed discipline like wearing a face mask, and observance of social distancing at all times,” he added.

Natividad urged the public to bear with the possible stricter restrictions to lessen the spread of infections. 

“Team NCRPO fully supports and respects decisions made by higher authorities for a possibility of alert level 2 in NCR especially when it concerns the welfare of the general public and its personnel,” he said. 

“Further, please bear with us and your government. We assure you that we will keep our communities safe and protected at all times no matter what it takes,” he added.
