The Department of Science and Technology – Misamis Occidental (DOST X) has donated face shields to Misamis Occidental frontliners as the community quarantine period repeatedly extended and COVID-19 frontliners became more in need of Personal Protective Equipment such as face masks and face shields.

Face shields are also now required PPE when going out to ride public transportation.

The DOST X has thus distributed 50 pieces of Face Shields to LGU-Sapang Dalaga, and another 50 pieces of the same PPE to Calamba District Hospital on August 3, 2020.

The agency distributed a total of 266 pieces of Face Shields to different offices in the province. LGU-Clarin received 30 pieces, LGU-Bonifacio received 50 pieces, Dona Maria D. Tan Hospital in Tangub City received 86 pieces, and Mayor Hilarion A. Ramiro Sr. Medical Center in Ozamiz City received 100 pieces.

LGU-Clarin, whose local official is actively implementing measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the community, is considered to be critical. LGU-Bonifacio, a border entrance from Molave, Zamboanga del Sur, also needs high attention.

Both the Dona Maria D. Tan Hospital in Tangub City and Mayor Hilarion A. Ramiro Sr. Medical Center in Ozamiz City are the identified hospitals in Misamis Occidental that accept COVID-19 related cases. Personnel from the two hospitals were grateful for the face shields received.

Face shields distributed are DOST-Metal Industry Research and Development Center (DOST-MIRDC) products through plastic injection mold technology fabricated at the Die and Mold Solution Center, a facility within the DOST-MIRDC compound.

The fight for COVID-19 goes on and this calls for more continuing partnership among government and private offices to end this pandemic.

DOST has developed bamboo-framed face shields, REwear face masks, and released a Pandemic Manual of technologies needed in health emergencies.
