Authorities conduct surprise inspection in malls, restos in San Fernando
San Fernando City’s Incident Management Team is conducting random inspection to ensure that establishments are complying with the city’s infection control policy, according to the Philippine Information Agency
In a PIA report, IMT Incident Commander and City Health Officer-in-Charge Carlos Mercado said the inspection was a response to complaints received by the city government regarding non-compliance with the health protocols of some establishments.
“This inspection is a good reminder for establishments and individual residents because as we noticed, the public now seems to be complacent in dealing with Covid-19,” he was quoted as saying.
“Through this, we want to remind them that the virus is still there, that it is contagious, and worst, it can lead to death,” Mercado added.
Among the establishments inspected are malls, fast food chains, restaurants, government centers, and public places, the report said.
The group checks whether the establishments comply with minimum health standards against Covid-19. Those who failed to comply were given warning and will be under close monitoring of the task force, according to the report.
