At the start of its modified general community quarantine, Baguio suddenly reported two new coronavirus cases on Monday, June 1, bringing to 4 its total active cases.

Ailene Doria, 28, of City Camp Central, came out in the open to help in the city's contact tracing program.

Doria returned to Baguio last March 28 to resume her job as a store manager here.

Instead, she tested positive for the coronavirus.

Bernardo Agbuya, 25, was having a drinking spree with friends in Sitio Apugan in Barangay Poliwes on the evening of May 28, despite a citywide liquor ban.

Agbuya and his brother had an alcohol-induced fistfight and their father tried to pacify them.

Instead, the brothers mauled their father.

They were slapped charges of direct assault with resistance and disobedience to persons in authority, and violation of the liquor ban.

It is city policy to test all incoming detainees, and Bernard tested positive for the coronavirus. He was asymptomatic.

Baguio Canine "microchipping" starts November

Want to give "man's best friend" a bit more protection in case they get lost or stolen?

The mandatory installation of microchip tags on dogs will start this November.

Thus bared City Veterinary and Agriculture Office (CVAO) chief Dr. Bridgit Piok during the City Hall flag-raising program.

She said, installation of microchips is mandatory for pets that are three-months old or over.

The microchip tagging of dogs is pursuant to Ordinance No. 60-2020. It establishes easier ownership tracking of dogs; protection of pets from theft; monitoring schedule of anti-rabies jabs; and, establishing accountability of pet-owners, among others.

The micro tag which rests under the dog's skin holds information on the owner's name, address, contacts, and description of the canine.

It costs P300 per dog and may be administered in barangays during scheduled mass tagging activities or at the CVAO.

A registration certificate shall then be issued after the dog had been microchipped. It is a permanent record that lasts until the dog's lifetime, unless there a change of ownership.

When the dog passes, the owner is required to inform the barangay or CVAO within five days.

In changes of ownership, the new owner must report the same within a period not exceeding ten days. Registration by the new owner costs P250.

Under the ordinance, Piok revealed, absence of the chip on a dog three-months old or over violates Ordinance No. 60-2020. A fine of P2,000 shall be imposed upon the owner.

A fine of P2,000 is likewise imposed upon owners of stray pooches.

She said, any person who releases an impounded dog without it having been micro-tagged or without fees or fines having been paid by the owner shall be fined P1,000, over possible administrative or criminal charges.

The ordinance imposes an impounding fee of P500 per dog; maintenance fee of P50 per dog per day; and, adoption fee of P500 per dog, she added.

Piok disclosed, within three-days, unclaimed dogs at the city pound may be put up for adoption; or, donated for scientific studies; or, put down.

The viral photos of Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Archie Gamboa showing him with a group of people without face masks and not following the protocols on physically distancing were actually taken before the imposition of pandemic restrictions.

The Philippine National Police (PNP) threatened to file complaints against individuals who are spreading photos of the PNP chief.

On Tuesday, August 18, the Philippine Star posted the photos, saying that the images were of Gamboa's controversial Baguio City dinner allegedly held on Saturday, August 15. The publication said the information came from a reliable source.

However, the photos were taken on February 18 at a dinner party in Forbes Park, Makati City, weeks before the coronavirus lockdown and health protocols were enforced.
