Bldg. 18 has 60 individuals occupying the residential/commercial building, while Sitio Aplaya houses 292 residents.

Brgy. Poblacion capt. Allen Ampaya earlier coordinated with CHO following the reports of COVID-19 cases in the areas. The barangay has undertaken local quarantine protocols for the communities and has provided food packs prior to the imposition of ELCQ.

Muntinlupa CHO is set to conduct a mass swab testing in the affected areas while Muntinlupa PNP is set to enforce total lockdown measures. The City Social Service Department and Barangay will also provide food packs and other basic items for the affected residents during the effectivity of the ELCQ.
