Dr. Teodoro U. Fortaleza of the City Drug Abuse Prevention and Rehabilitation Office (CDAPRO) announced that his office will make ready for the drug tests with the kits in due time for those who turned themselves in just as his office is open to drug users who may be already needing medical help on withdrawal syndrome or rehabilitation.

Mayor Aquino also announced the need for all barangay officials to submit for drug tests which schedule will be set only by the city government. Notice will be given when schedule for a particular barangay is set while failure to comply on the part of any and/or all barangay officials to comply on schedule will cause necessary and allowable sanctions to be meted out.

On announcement of the mayor that barangay officials have the liberty to choose a venue for respective tests – be it in Tacloban, Calbayog or anywhere – but which date will be regulated by the city government, those in attendance agreed that drug tests be done within the city of Calbayog.

The meeting that adjourned at shortly after twelve high noon was also attended by newly elected city councilor Charlie Coñejos, department heads of the city government and provincial police officers.
