Stricter Covid-19 protocols enforced in San Antonio town
San Antonio Mayor Arvin Salonga on Tuesday issued an order calling for stricter health protocols in the Nueva Ecija town in response to the surge in new coronavirus cases.
According to a Punto Central Luzon report, the mayor asked village officials to go on an information campaign to disseminate new guidelines under Executive Order 15, Series of 2021, which sets stricter rules on mass gathering.
“We modified the minimum health protocols to protect our constituents from Covid-19,” Salonga said in the report.
The EO imposes a curfew in the town from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
It also states that only immediate members of a family can attend large gatherings such as weddings, birthdays, and funeral wakes, the report said.
The EO mandates that a special permit shall be secured from the local government before a wedding or birthday is celebrated.
“Zumba sessions held within the municipality are prohibited and suspended until further notice,” the EO said. Alcoholic drinks are also banned, according to the EO.
