After the devastation caused by super typhoon Odette, Parilla noticed that the public has become more relaxed on compliance with health protocols.

Police has become considerate given the crisis but Parilla said that they will now continue to implement strict measures to avoid a surge in cases.

Aside from the police force, Parilla also reminds the public to be responsible with their actions and always have in mind the existing protocols.

Parilla earlier said that they have yet to meet with city officials on possible changes on the implementation of health protocols, considering that the National Capital Region was placed under a more stringent Alert Level 3.
