MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine National Police (PNP) will start the implementation of the liquor ban in Quiapo, Manila on Tuesday (January 8) at 8:00 o’clock in the evening until the annual procession is over.

According to PNP Chief DG Oscar Albayalde, the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) has been on full alert status for the security of the event.

The PNP calls on those who will join the procession to support the measures to be imposed by authorities.

Despite the expected surge of participants in the annual ‘Traslacion’, the PNP said they have not monitored potential threats to the occasion on Wednesday.

“We have not monitored any significant security issue that may possibly affect the otherwise peaceful and orderly celebration of the feast of the black Nazarene in Manila this year including other annual religious festivities celebrated in January,” Albayalde assured. – Marje Pelayo / UNTV News and Rescue

Robie de Guzman   •   October 26, 2021

After almost a year, the government of Davao City lifted the curfew in all public places and the 24-hour ban on liquor amid declining cases of COVID-19 in the city.

In an executive order, Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio said the 24-hour ban on selling of alcoholic beverages has been eased and would take effect from 1 a.m. to 8 a.m.

Duterte-Carpio, however, said that serving of liquor for consumption in bars, restaurants, sari-sari stores, palengke (wet market), videoke, and other business establishments, and drinking liquor in all public places are still prohibited.

The modified liquor ban will be effective from October 26, 2021 to January 1, 2022.

Aside from easing ban on the sale of liquors, the city government also lifted the 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. curfew in public places, also starting on October 26 to allow more mobility for residents and visitors in the city.

Mass gatherings, however, will remain limited. The city government also reminded the public to continue adhering to health protocols and to observe proper ventilation when in a closed space.

Duterte-Carpio said the local government intends to gradually reopen the city amid decreasing infections and increasing vaccination rate.

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)
