Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno has signed Executive Order no. 17 which strictly enforces city ordinances that implement liquor ban. This includes selling near schools and selling it to minors.

Stores and other establishments that are within the 200-km range of schools and universities are not allowed to sell liquor.

However, Moreno said there are several establishments that “flagrantly violated” the said ordinances.

“Such violations of said city ordinances affect the physical and moral well-being of the Manilenos in general, and the youths and students, in particular, prompting for the strict implementation of said ordinances and imposing the penalties provided therefore,” the executive order read.

Moreno already canceled the permit of establishments that are within the said range.

The executive order also states that violators would be subjected to administrative and criminal charges, fines, and revocation of permits and licenses issued by the local government.—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)

MANILA, Philippines – Six villages in the City of Manila are now under lockdown amid increasing cases of novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the country.

At midnight of March 17, the local government locked down Barangays 185, 374, 521, 628, 675, and 847.

Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso said residents in the said barangays shall be strictly confined to their homes and are prohibited from going outside.

The lockdown order, however, exempts health workers, military personnel, service workers, utility workers, barangay officials, and media practitioners accredited by the Presidential Communications Operations Office and the Inter-Agency Task Force.

Domagoso signed on Monday Executive Order No. 07 to conduct disease surveillance, massive contact tracing, and verification or testing and rapid risk assessment as part of “the city’s response measures to the imminent danger posed by the resurgence of COVID-19.”

“Ang mga barangay na sumusunod ay napapasailalim sa apat na araw na lockdown. Brgy. 185, 374, 521, 628, 675, at 847. Sila po ay may mga sampu mahigit na kaso ng COVID-19 sa barangay,” Mayor Isko said.

Local authorities warned to slap sanctions against violators.

The granular lockdown on six barangays will be imposed until March 20. – RRD (with details from Correspondent Marvin Calas)

Minors banned outdoors anew for two weeks starting March 17

Marje Pelayo   •   March 16, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — The Metro Manila Council through the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) is once again banning minors from going outdoors starting Wednesday, March 17.

The MMDA is now drafting a resolution prohibiting minors, particularly aged 15-17, to go outdoors for a period of two weeks.  Only individuals aged 18 to 65 years old will be allowed to go outside their residences amid the alarming number of COVID-19 cases in Metro Manila.

This will be implemented in all the 17 local government units comprising the National Capital Region.

According to MMDA Chairman Benhur Abalos, the move has been agreed upon by the Metro Manila mayors in a bid to contain the transmission of the virus in the metropolis.

“We are implementing age restrictions because of the increase in our COVID-19 cases. We encourage everyone to strictly observe and practice the minimum health protocols, and be extra careful and follow stringent measures particularly when around vulnerable family members, as there have been reports of transmission among family members.” Abalos said.

“As I’ve said before, the metro mayors and MMDA are regularly monitoring the COVID-19 numbers and we will implement calibration and changes on our directives depending on the figures that we have,” he added.

Last month, Abalos said NCR mayors agreed to ease age restrictions as the government sought to encourage economic activities.
