PARISHES in the Archdiocese of Manila have opened theirs doors to provide shelter to medical frontliners amid the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic.

According to guidelines released by Chancellor Fr. Reginald Malicdem, hospital chiefs need to coordinate with the diocese and give a list of personnel who will stay in the shelters.

Parishes and religious institutions that house medical frontliners were urged to inform their barangays if they needed to be exempted from curfew hours.

President Rodrigo Duterte implemented a Luzon-wide “enhanced community quarantine” last March 16, which halted the operation of public transportation and ordered road checkpoints.

Frontliners were advised to follow sanitation standard protocols and observe social distancing. Alcohol will be provided in the premises. No visitors will be allowed.

A total of 21 parishes and religious institutions have opened their doors to medical frontliners as of March 29.
