MANILA, Philippines – Nagbabala si Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso na papanagutin ang mga magulang ng mga batang mahuhuling lumalabag sa mga ordinansa ng lungsod gaya ng curfew at pagsusuot ng face mask sa gitna ng coronavirus crisis.

Ayon kay Domagoso, inatasan na niya ang Manila Police District (MPD) at Manila Social Welfare Department na hulihin at ikulong ang mga magulang ng mga menor de edad na hindi sumusunod sa mga nabanggit na ordinansa.

Ang hakbang ay kasunod ng mga ulat ng mga batang inaabutan ng mga otoridad sa kalsada kahit dis-oras na ng gabi at wala pang suot na face mask.

Sa datos ng MPD mula Marso 15 hanggang Hulyo 13, nasa 1,039 na ang nahuling lumabag sa Ordinance No. 8644 o ang Mandatory Use of Face Mask in the Public.

Nasa 9,367 naman ang nadakip dahil sa paglabag sa Curfew Ordinance. Karamihan sa mga nahuling pagala-gala sa kalsada sa oras ng curfew ay mga menor de edad.

“Kaya ngayon ang focus ng manila police district sa implementation ng curfew ordinance natin pati yung magulang kakasuhan natin yung mga pabayang magulang,” ani Police Brigadier General Rolando Miranda, MPD director.

Sa ilalim ng City Ordinance No. 8243 o ang Anti-Child Endangerment Ordinance, maaaring maharap sa multang P5,000 o kaya ay hanggang anim na buwang pagkakakulong ang isang magulang na napatunayang nagpabaya sa kanyang anak na may edad na 12 taong gulang pababa.

Multang P3,000 o kaya’y tatlong buwang pagkakakulong naman para sa mga magulang na nagpabaya sa kanilang mga anak na may edad 13 hanggang 14 taon habang P2,000 naman ang multa o isang buwang pagkakapiit ang parusa sa mga magulang na magpapabaya sa kanilang anak na may edad 15 hanggang 17 taong gulang. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Dante Amento)

Manila City imposes 12am to 4am curfew until Nov. 30

Marje Pelayo   •   October 20, 2020

MANILA, Philippines — The City of Manila will adopt shorter curfew hours for the remaining months of 2020, Mayor Francisco ‘Isko Moreno’ Domagoso announced on Monday (October 19).

Ordinance No. 8692 imposes a curfew in the capital city from 12:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. until November 30. It will be one hour shorter come December 1 from 12:00 am to 3:00 am

Curfew hours were eased based on “approved proposals of the Economic Development Cluster on the gradual expansion of business operations to stimulate and sustain economic gains,” the Mayor said.

“Despite the gradual relaxation of curfew hours, quarantine and social distancing protocols within the City of Manila will remain to be enforced in accordance with IATF guidelines,” he added.

Minors, however, are still not covered by shortened curfew hours. 

The Mayor said they are still subject to Ordinance No. 8547, which establishes “protection and discipline hours” for minors from 10:00 pm to 4:00 am.

The ordinance takes effect immediately after its approval. 

It was signed after Domagoso issued Executive Order No. 41 which increases the authorized seating capacity of religious gatherings in churches, mosques and chapels from 10% to 30%.

PUV drivers, establishment workers and vendors in Manila to get free swab testing

Robie de Guzman   •   September 30, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – Public utility vehicle (PUV) drivers, market vendors and employees of various establishments in the Philippine capital will be provided with free RT-PCR tests, the Manila City government said Wednesday.

In a statement, the city’s public information office said Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso issued the order which will cover employees of malls, hotels, restaurants and supermarkets, and vendors in public markets as well as drivers of e-trikes, pedicabs, tricycles, jeepneys and buses operating in the city.

Under Domagoso’s Executive Order No. 39, the Manila Health Department was tasked to provide free swab tests to said workers.

The order follows the launch of Sta. Ana Hospital’s second molecular laboratory, which has the capacity to process around 1,000 tests daily. The additional laboratory will raise the hospital’s test processing capacity to 30,000 a month.

“The real threat of COVID-19 will continue to persist in our community, thereby sending fear to every person of getting infected with it. This fear will affect not only the individual preferences and behavior or every person, but also the economic growth (of the city),” Domagoso said.

“In order to allay the fear of getting infected with COVID-19, there is a need to assure the public that employees of these frequently visited establishments are COVID-19 free and thus spur economic activities,” he added.

Mayor Isko also directed the Manila Bureau of Permits and Licensing Office, the Department of Tourism, Culture and Arts of Manila, and the Manila Traffic and Parking Bureau to “require establishments under their jurisdiction to require filling up mandatory health declaration forms for contact tracing purposes.”
