Abstract


The Local Government Unit plays a significant role in mitigating problems such as the COVID-19 Pandemic. However, the government alone cannot end the pandemic without public’s help public and vice-versa. The citizens also play a vital role in stopping the further transmission of the COVID-19 pandemic by religiously practicing health and safety protocols at home or wherever they go. This study investigated the relationship between the health and safety protocols as well as the status of governance of the Local Government Unit of Midsayap using the evidence-based key indicators of Good Governance aggregated from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). A quantitative research design was employed to determine the relationship of the variables under study. Findings showed that the residents of Midsayap often practice the necessary health and safety measures against COVID-19 and that the Local Government Unit of Midsayap is effective in responding to the pandemic. Moreover, the two variables also show a strong positive relationship.
