BACOLOD CITY –– Three government offices have been temporarily shut down after some of their staff members tested positive for COVID-19.

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) in Bacolod City, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) in Bago City, and the Central Negros Electric Cooperative (CENECO) in Silay City had to be disinfected to prevent the spread of the virus.
