Curfew in Cebu City extended to 12 midnight on Valentine’s Day
CEBU CITY, Philippines — Good news for couples and families celebrating Valentine’s Day today. You can stay out longer than usual.
This as the Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) said that they will be implementing the verbal mandate of Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama to extend the curfew here on Monday, February 14, 2022, until 12 midnight.
“We will abide the directive of the mayor. Even ang atoang minimum health protocols Oplan Bulabog last week, gibuhat na ni natog 12 midnight,” said Police Lieutenant Colonel Wilbert Parilla, the deputy director for administration of the CCPO.
(We will abide the directive of the mayor. Even our minimum health protocols Oplan Bulabog last week, we already made it 12 midnight.)
The CCPO will be monitoring the areas where people will most likely crowd in the city including parks, malls, and restaurants.
So far, the CCPO noticed that there are fewer people violating of health protocols.
Parilla said they have apprehended 175 adults and rescued three minors in the most recent Oplan Bulabog last weekend.
He believes that most of the public and establishment are now conscious of health protocols, and the police hope the public will continue to do so, especially on Monday as they celebrate Valentine’s Day.
According to the Business Permit and Licensing Office (BPLO) there are ten establishments around the city that are being strictly monitored for their compliance to health protocols.
BPLO head Lawyer Jared Limquiaco said in previous statements that these ten establishments have been warned for previous offenses.
They will be monitored and checked especially this holiday for their compliance. Any breach of protocol may cause immediate suspension.
At least one establishment has been recommended for suspension already by the BPLO to Mayor Rama over multiple violation of the health protocols.
