Today, March 17, Medical Director of the Belo Medical Group, Dr. Vicki Belo, announced on her personal Twitter account that they will be donating their "remaining stocks of PPE (personal protective equipment)" to hospitals and health centers in need. Personal protective equipment includes masks, gloves, gowns, goggles, and the like, and are worn by health workers at the frontlines of the COVID-19 treatment.

She also went on to share how she will be securing the well-being of her employees as the enhanced community quarantine forced companies to suspend work. Belo committed to the following:

  • The extension of full-pay, full-benefits for all employees despite the work suspension.
  • The early release of employees' 13th-month pay.
  • A modified "no work, with pay" scheme for employees, should the work suspension last beyond May 2020.
