Zamboanga City Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco on January 5 reminded all Zamboangeños to maintain “family bubbles” as the city prepares for the surge of the COVID-19 Omicron variant.


Family bubbles, as explained by the Rappler, is a term used to describe a cluster of people who are comfortable spending their time with each other.


Mayor Climaco stressed the importance of not letting down the guard against COVID-19, saying people from neighboring areas frequently go to the city.


“We have to heighten the implementation of the minimum health protocols, and it has to go down to our barangay health emergency response teams, including our barangay information officers,” Mayor Climaco said.
