Angeles Mayor Lazatin orders ‘no face mask, no entry’ policy in 2 public markets
Starting Monday, market-goers can no longer enter the Pampang and San Nicolas Public Markets without a face mask, per instructions of Angeles City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr.
The mayor has ordered the implementation of a “no face-mask, no entry” policy at public markets, according to a report in Punto newspaper.
Lazatin was quoted as saying buyers in the public markets are strictly required to wear face masks and would not be granted entrance without one.
The report said the mayor also instructed the Angeles City Anti-Drug Abuse Council to turn over 500 pieces of cloth face masks to the officials of the public markets as part of the city’s preventive measures against the spread of the coronavirus disease (Covid-19).
“This policy is to promote being vigilant, safe, and alert amidst the coronavirus scare while we are still facing the outbreak in the country,” he said.
The market-goers are also required to undergo misting before entering the public markets.
