PANGASINAN, Philippines — A barangay in San Nicolas town in this province has been placed on lockdown after a resident tested positive for coronavirus disease 2019 or COVID-19.

Mayor Alicia Primicias-Enriquez ordered the lockdown of Barangay San Felipe effective 6 p.m. on Saturday.

The order was issued after a 29-year-old man, who traveled to Antipolo, Quezon City and Manila tested positive for COVID-19.

The patient became the town’s first COVID case. His relatives will be prohibited from going out of their house.

The municipal government, along with barangay officials, will provide the basic needs of the family until the 14-day quarantine period lapsed.

Checkpoints were established along the village’s borders to limit movement of residents.
