Relax quarantine measures in Central Luzon, private sector rep urges
A private sector representative urged the Central Luzon Regional Development Council (RDC) on Saturday to relax community quarantine measures in the region to allow businesses to resume operations while adhering to health protocols.
According to a Sunstar Pampanga report, Rene Romero and other RDC private sector representatives adopted a resolution “supporting the move of the national government to gradually allow the reopening of the economy, while mindful of public health and safety.”
The resolution states that such action will help address the growing rate of hunger, poverty, joblessness, and income loss that arise due to the pandemic, the report said.
RDC vice chairperson and National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Officer-In-Charge Regional Director Agustin Mendoza said the private sector’s call was consistent with the thrust of the National Action Plan Against Covid-19 Phase 3 (NAP 3) of the government.
“NAP 3 is centered on creating an equilibrium both on health safety and economic recovery. The government is currently strengthening its Prevent-Detect-Isolate-Treat-Reintegrate strategy in order to breathe life into and gradually open the economy,” he was quoted as saying.
