Garcia warns protocol violators: Cooperate or face fines, penalties
Bataan Governor Albert Garcia reminded his constituents to strictly comply with the new health and safety protocols under a new ordinance aimed at curbing spread of Covid-19.
“Violators are subject to fines and punishment,” the governor warned.
“We would like to remind everyone that we are imposing this for the safety of all because in spite of the ongoing vaccine roll-out in the province the Covid-19 threat is still here,” Garcia said.
“We ask for everyone’s cooperation and show love and concern to one another as well as our country in order to win this fight against this pandemic,” he added.
Under Provincial Ordinance 4, Series of 2021, everybody is required to wear face masks and face shields outside of residences, and persons below 15 years old and above 65 years old, those with immunodeficiency, comorbidity, or other health risks, and pregnant women, may not leave their residence except for essential or emergency travels.
The ordinance also mandates physical distancing of at least six feet.
Mass gatherings are also banned, except religious and essential gatherings provided minimum health standards and safety protocols are observed.
A curfew is in effect from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., according to the ordinance.
