Hinikayat ng Department of Health ang Filipino Muslims na ipagdiwang ang Eid’l Fitr sa kani-kanilang mga tahanan upang maiwasan ang pagkalat at pagkahawa sa virus.
Ngayong Miyerkules, Mayo 12, inaasahang gaganapin ang Eid’l Fitr sa bansa at payo ng DOH, “[The] DOH strongly recommends praying and celebrating Eid at home to keep yourself and your family safe from COVID-19.”
Para naman sa mga nais lumabas at pumunta sa pook sambahan, pinaalala ng DOH sa mga Filipino Muslims na sumunod pa rin sa itinakdang health protocols.
“Always observe physical distancing of at least one meter, and wear your face mask and face shield properly. Ensure there is proper ventilation in place of gathering and limit interaction to 15 minutes. Always wash or sanitize your hands, especially after touching high-touch surfaces,” paalala ng DOH.
“If you feel any symptoms, do not attend any gathering,” muling paalala ng DOH.
Mas mainam din umano na ibukod ang sarili matapos dumalo sa pagdiriwang ng Eid’l Fitr at sumailalim sa 14-day quarantine upang hindi mahawa ang mga kapamilyang hindi dumalo o nanatili lamang sa loob ng kanilang tahanan.
Kung may maramdamang sintomas tulad ng lagnat, ubo, panghihina, pagkawala ng panlasa at pang-amoy, pananakit ng katawan atbp, agarang makipag-ugnayan umano sa pinakamalapit na Barangay Health Emergency Response Team o tumawag sa DOH telemedicine hotlines.
