HOME QUARANTINE

HOME QUARANTINE. While her mother observes from a meter distance, 11-year old Monique Torina is checked for body temperature by the indefatigable barangay health workers of Barangay IX in Vigan City, Ilocos Sur. Mom and daughter arrived from Manila just before the declaration of the Luzon-wide lockdown, and immediately went under home quarantine as ordered by the city government of Vigan to protect residents from COVID-19 infection. The two are being monitored continuously for 14 days and must not show any symptoms within the period before they can be certified free of the coronavirus. (photo by Jasper A. Espejo)
