MANILA - The House of Representatives confirmed another case of COVID-19 among its personnel, bringing the total number of its staff who have been infected to 11. 

House Secretary General Jose Luis Montales said a House employee assigned at the Committee on Justice tested positive for COVID- 19 on Sunday.

The employee last went to the Batasan Pambansa on June 24 to pick up some materials, Montales said. 

On June 15, she attended a brief meeting with her peers in the Committee on Justice, Montales added.

"We remind everyone to be extra cautious. With the lifting of restrictions on the movement of people and the opening of economy, we are exposed to higher risk when we go outside of our homes," Montales said.  - Report from RG Cruz, ABS-CBN News
