    This may not be the source you seek but it is yet another fairly reliable one. Hope it helps.

    Thanks CH, yes this is confirmation of the Siquijor cases; This should be on the DOH website. Now we need to check the PNA AND the DOH for real information.

    News releases from the DOH seem to lag the "main stream media" (aka facebook) by several days. There are a couple of Dumaguete FB pages one is by Roy Buzz Headz up NegOr. His page is almost always accurate. There are a couple of other FB pages who's names escape me.
    You may question these sources but I have seen some live feeds of the local officials trying to give an update, the reporters seem to know more about what's going on than the official.

    From MetroPost Sunday 2/16:
    CoViD-19 Filipina Is 9th PUI In NegOr
    Judy Flores-Partlow (PNA)
    The provincial government of Negros Oriental has reported its ninth Person under Investigation for the 2019 novel coronavirus (CoViD-19) just a day after the first eight PUIs tested negative of the virus and were released from quarantine and isolation.

    The ninth PUI, meanwhile, is a Filipino woman from Bayawan City, who has a history of travel to Hong Kong, and had exhibited respiratory symptoms such as cough. She is now in isolation at the Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital here awaiting results of throat swab tests from the RITM. Meanwhile, four other Filipinos in Bayawan are categorized as Persons under Monitoring after their recent return from a trip to Taiwan, Degamo said. Their quarantine period of 14 days ends on Feb. 18. Degamo has reiterated that while there is no travel ban against foreigners or even Filipinos who have come from mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan, his executive order still stands to have them undergo quarantine, whether self-imposed or seek medical attention at the NOPH if symptoms occur.

    The PUIs, who were identified through contact tracing by the Department of Health and local health authorities, had come in close contact with the country’s first two CoViD-19 cases – a Chinese male and a Chinese female who visited Negros Oriental from Jan. 22 to 25. They had all tested negative of the deadly virus during the initial round of separate swab tests conducted by the RITM in Manila. The PUIs included employees of a hotel and resort where the Chinese couple had stayed, as well as other close contact persons such as a pedicab driver, among others.

    From the MetroPost, Sunday 2/16:
    <<
    Twenty-three people who somehow had had contacts with the Chinese couple infected with novel coronavirus (cover-19) have completed the mandatory quarantine and manifested no signs and symptoms of infection. xxxCity Health Officer Dr. Maria Sarah B. Talla reports that the 23 Persons Under Monitoring (PUMs) for having had contact with Chinese couple who visited the city on January 21, 2020 have been cleared of possible infection by the City Health Office. xxxxx

    Those who completed the quarantine and did not manifest signs and symptoms of infection include the two tricycle drivers, workers of the hotel and (resort) establishment and some passengers who were with the Chinese couple during the Cebu-Dumaguete flight.>>

    So they are releasing people after 14 days? I could have sworn I read an article that said incubation period was 24 days and not 14. Was that fake news?

    I'm curious how residents of Dumaguete are reacting to the virus. Are they all staying home? Are the roads less crowded? Is everyone wearing a mask?
    Or is it just another day. I have a trip schedules in March but thinking of postponing.

    Few use masks.
    Hotels and restaurants have less people, especially outside city center.

    No checkpoints , unlike I experienced a lot before outbreak :o o:

    People going about as usual, to work, to school etc. Had some days where school was closed due to upset parents, open again now. I think you won't see any difference in traffic pollution now, meaning the traffic same.

    This is my observations
