In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Aurora State College of Technology spearheaded by the Socio-Cultural Affairs of the Office of Student Services and the Department of Arts and Sciences planned an extension program entitled MASK for ALL: PROTECT THE PEOPLE navigating to help through giving and providing face masks to the people who are in utmost need during this pandemic like the frontliners and indigenous people.
This program entails selling a pair of masks amounting for only Php 119.00 with proceeds to be used in creating more face masks to be freely given to those who need them most or to the needy. It was supported by the school administrators headed by Dr. Eutiquio L. Rotaquio, Jr., College President; For. Michelle A. Resueno, Vice President for Planning and Finance; and Dr. Eusebio V. Angara, Vice President for Academic Affairs; faculty members, staff, students, and stakeholders of the College. Moreover, President Rotaquio; Vice President Resueno; and Miss Glenda M. Nad, Director of Sentro ng Wika at Kultura, bought lot of masks that they gave to the frontliners of the College: the security guards, utilities, job orders (JO) and contract of service (COS). This initiative led by Dr. Jay M. Amon, Director of Socio-Cultural Affairs, was indeed a vital support to the Aurora government’s action in maintaining ZERO COVID CASE in Aurora and as a COVID-19 Free province in the Philippines as well as partaking on the fight against COVID-19 pandemic that already spread worldwide.
The main goal of giving face masks to the people can contribute to prevent transmission of COVID-19 and as a support to the World Health Organization recommending that everyone must wear face masks in public places in order to reduce the spread of the virus. Moreover, the combination of widespread use of face mask, social distancing and quarantine measures is an acceptable way of managing the pandemic.
The Socio-Cultural Affairs is now collecting and buying face masks as a support to this program. Furthermore, they are currently giving face masks to the frontliners and indigenous people. To wit, this extension program maxim goes:
