P25.5-M isolation building in Lubao now complete

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO — A P25.5-million single-storey isolation building, funded by the national government, has just been completed in Brgy. Sta. Catalina, Lubao town.

Governor Dennis “Delta” Pineda, who led the inspection of the said building on Friday, said the project came into fruition through the Local Government Support Fund–Disaster Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Assistance Program (LGSF-DRRAP) of the national government.

“Bigay ito ng pamahalaang nasyunal sa ‘tin bilang tugon do’n sa hiniling natin kay Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte noong 2021. Mayroon itong forty-two (42) air-conditioned rooms na may kanya-kanyang comfort rooms. Mag-uukol din tayo ng kwarto para sa mga doktor at sa nurse station,” said the governor.

He said the building will add up to the existing isolation facilities in the province, which will cater individuals afflicted with COVID-19.
