(Press Release) — Philippine Honorary Consul to the CNMI Glicerio “Eli” Arago is appealing to members of the Filipino community, their families and friends on Saipan, Tinian, and Rota, to respect individual privacy in the midst of a public health emergency brought by the spread of coronavirus.

At the same time, Honorary Consul Arago is asking every Filipino national to strictly heed Gov. Ralph DLG Torres’ directives on social distancing and curfew for all ages.

“It is our individual obligation to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 in our small, close-knit community,” Honorary Consul Arago said as he reminded Filipino nationals of the governor’s directive to “stay indoors” and to practice social distancing.

The Philippine Honorary Consulate is also calling on every Filipino “to exercise caution” when posting information about individuals suspected of having the coronavirus disease.

Honorary Consul Arago said his office has been receiving calls from individuals expressing concerns about information posted on social media regarding the identities of patients and those under quarantine.

“Again, I am asking every Filipino citizen in the CNMI to exercise prudence and caution when posting information on any social media platform especially during this time of public health emergency,” he added.

In the CNMI, he said, the Office of the Governor, the governor’s Covid-19 Task Force, and the Commonwealth Healthcare Corp. are the entities that issue official announcements and/or updates relating to Covid-19.
