Doctors’ advice: Labella to keep working remotely


Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella will continue remote work. His doctors have not allowed the mayor to return to City Hall just yet.

In his virtual presser Friday, Labella assured that his physical absence won’t affect the delivery of the city’s basic services.

He said that his doctors advised him to avoid crowds because he’s immunocompromised. (

“I’m just following doctors’ advice… Anyway I can still work at home,” according to him.

Labella started overseeing the city from home last January 25 after a three-day medical leave due to an ear infection.
