Arquenza said the PPCJ management will not be accepting visitors at the facility and activities of the jail that will require congregation of Persons Deprived of Liberty (PDLs) will be suspended.

“Ang suspension ay 14 days mula March 12 hanggang March 25, pero magdedepende po ‘yan kung ma-eextend pa. Kahit po ang mga service providers hindi rin po pwedeng dumalaw at ang mga personnel po ay required pong lahat ay naka-mask,” she said.

They appealed for the understanding of the community, especially the families of the PDLs who have planned to visit their detained relatives.

“Humihingi lang po kami ng pang-unawa para naman din po ‘yon sa kaligtasan ng mga PDL, personnel pati na rin po ang mga dalaw kasi kung saka sakali po na makapasok ‘yan sa atin, confined po tayo dito baka mas mahirapan po tayo,” Arquenza added.
