Face-to-face Christmas parties banned in Angeles
Angeles City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. has banned all face-to-face parties during the holidays.
Under Executive Order 30, the mayor prohibited holiday parties among individuals not staying in the same household from December 6 to January 10 next year.
“Ginagawa lamang po natin ang mga necessary safety measures bilang pagiingat po sa ating mga kababayan, lalo na po ngayon na mayroon na namang bagong variant na nadedetect sa ibang bansa,” Lazatin said.
The EO also states the prohibition of any Christmas and New Year parties, reunions, and similar social gatherings for offices, establishments, and companies; reunions with family members who live in different households; reunions with former colleagues and schoolmates; and parties with individuals who are part of the same group or organization.
“Let us not put our guard down,” Lazatin said.
“In this upcoming holiday season, we should be of help to one another in putting an end in this pandemic. Ito naman po ang tunay na kahulugan ng mga selebrasyon na ito — pagmamahalan at pagtutulungan,” he added.
