On the first day of the Modified General Community Quarantine (MGCQ) in Puerto Princesa City, Mayor Lucilo R. Bayron yesterday reminded the residents to properly observe health protocols such as social distancing and disinfection as he also urged authorities, law enforcers and employers to enforce the mandatory wearing of face masks.
“Mandatory wearing of face masks is the ‘new normal’ in the city,” he said.
To ensure that the mandatory wearing of face mask is observed and complied with, he instructed the Philippine National Police (PNP) particularly the City PNP, the City Anti-Crime Task Force, the City Traffic Management Office, all 66 Punong Barangays, and private employers that health protocols are properly observed to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
“Hanggang sa ngayon ay wala pa ring gamot o bakuna kontra sa COVID-19. Bagamat ang ating lunsod ay napapailalim na ngayong June 1 sa Modified General Community Quarantine (MGCQ), pinapaalalahanan parin ang lahat ng mamamayan na mandatory ang pagamit ng face mask kapag lumalabas ng bahay,” Mayor Bayron said.
Mayor Bayron said that he ordered the City’s police director to intensify police visibility to ensure that health protocols are properly complied with by the city residents. The curfew this time under MGCQ is from 10:00 PM until 5:00 AM.
“Ipinag-utos ko rin kay Chief of Police Col Marion Balonglong na dagdagan ang police visibility at sawatain ang mga pasaway na mamamayan na hindi sumusunod sa mga health protocols at mahigpit na ipatupad ang 10:00 PM – 5:00 AM Curfew,” he said.
