Curfew from 11 pm to 5 am imposed in Angeles City
Angeles City has imposed a curfew from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. as a precaution against the surge in new coronavirus cases.
Angeles City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. issued the order that would take effect on Wednesday, March 17.
“Bunsod ng biglaang pagtaas ng bilang ng mga Covid-19 cases sa siyudad, ipinag-utos natin ang pagbalik ng curfew mula 11 p.m. hanggang 5 a.m. Isa ito sa nakikita nating paraan upang maiwasan ang tuluyan pang pagkalat ng virus,” the mayor said.
Resolution 02, Series of 2021 was issued on Monday upon the recommendation of the local Inter-Agency Task Force.
The order also mandated the shutdown of gyms, fitness studios, and sports facilities for two weeks.
“Base sa recomendasyon nila Dr. Canlas at Dr. Gueverra, ipapasara muna natin ang mga gyms sa siyudad. Isa ito sa mga nakikitang lugar na possibleng kumalat ang Covid-19 virus, dahil sa pagiging ‘enclosed space’ nito kung saan nagpapawis at nasgsasama-sama ang iba’t ibang klase ng tao,” he said.
Restaurants with dine-in facilities were ordered to maintain only 50 percent capacity. Churches and other places of worship are supposed to be at 30 percent capacity.
