Baguio forms discipline brigades to enforce health protocols

LGUs can create their own brigades to ensure public compliance to health protocols.

The Baguio city government has sworn in 604 members of its “Disiplina” (discipline) brigade from the 128 barangays who will ensure public compliance to the minimum health and safety protocols against the coronavirus.

The brigade is composed of at least five persons per barangay. Their primary function at this time is to enforce the health and safety protocols to avoid getting sick of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19). They are also tasked to recruit more people in the villages to help promote discipline and responsible behavior among the residents.

The brigade members are also tasked to be role models and lead in the implementation of the programs, policies, projects and activities under the Disiplina Muna campaign’s seven pillars — road clearing, disaster preparedness and resilience, anti-smoking, ease of doing business, liquor ban, tourist spots cleanup, and barangay anti-drug abuse council.
