Ready, sing: Karaoke, videoke establishments now allowed to operate in Lapu-Lapu
LAPU-LAPU CITY, Cebu—The Lapu-Lapu City Government will now allow the operation of karaoke and videoke businesses establishments in the city.

During these hours, establishments are required to disinfect their rooms and machines every hour.
These establishments are also allowed to serve alcoholic beverages but only limited to two bottles per customer.

Those karaoke and videoke establishments who will be found violating the E.O. shall be ordered closed immediately or have their business permit revoked and be subjected to appropriate civil, criminal, and administrative liabilities.
