The Davao City government is set to lift its liquor ban on September 21 to help business owners and employees in the liquor industry.

Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte will issue an executive order next week to lift the city’s liquor ban that was imposed in April. Duterte also clarified she is not lifting the liquor ban to accommodate people’s clamor for alcohol.

The Davao mayor also reiterated that beer pubs are still prohibited from operating since it is included in the negative list of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).

“We did not lift the liquor ban for you. We lifted the liquor ban for the businesses and for the people who are working in the liquor business,” she said. AAC

First to third-generation close contacts of confirmed coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases will now be required to undergo Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) testing, according to the Davao City Government.

Vice Mayor and acting Davao City Mayor Sebastian Z. Duterte ordered the mandatory swabbing of all F1, F2, and F3 close contacts of a confirmed COVID-19 case which will be effective until December 31, 2021.

He issued Executive Order (E.O.) No. 20, Series of 2021, known as “An Order Providing For Mandatory Swabbing Of All F1, F2, and F3 Contacts of an RT-PCR Confirmed Positive Case of COVID-19 in Davao City.”

As stated in the EO, the acting mayor said, “There is a need to expand the testing of contacts beyond the F1 category as an attempt to control the transmission of the virus.”

He also cited the need to recalibrate strategies to prevent and control COVID-19 transmission in Davao City amid the surge of cases in the National Capital Region (NCR).

Vice Mayor Duterte is the acting mayor of Davao City from April 6 to 10 while her sister Mayor Inday Sara Duterte took a leave for health reasons. AAC

MANILA, Philippines – Pinalawig pa ng lokal na pamahalaan ng Davao City ang pagpapatupad ng curfew at liquor ban sa lungsod hanggang sa buwan ng Mayo sa kabila ng pagbaba ng kaso ng COVID-19.

Sa ilalim ng Executive Order 12A na inilabas nitong Miyerkules, mananatili hanggang Mayo 31 ang liquor ban at curfew upang maiwasan ang inuman at pagtitipon ng mga tao na ilan sa mga mga dahilan ng pagkalat ng COVID-19.

Ayon kay Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, hindi dapat magpabaya ang publiko dahil nananatili pa rin ang banta ng coronavirus.

“We are still waiting for the possible second wave. At kung mangyari ang second wave ibabalik pa rin nating ang liquor ban at curfew. So ipagpapatuloy na lng natin ‘yan sa ngayon para hindi siya makapag-create ng confusion,” ani Duterte.

Sa Marso 31 orihinal na nakatalagang magtapos ang 24/7 liquor ban at ang curfew hours na mula alas-9 ng gabi hanggang alas-4 ng madaling araw.

Hindi naman sakop ng curfew ang mga may trabaho at nag-o-operate ng negosyo, batay sa kautusan.

Sa ngayon ay mayroong 258 na aktibong mga kaso ng COVID-19 sa lungsod. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Lucille Lloren)
