Minors should avoid shopping malls and limit their time there, according to the CDO.
Even though the Covid-19 quarantine has been decreased to Alert Level 2, the local administration has urged parents not to bring their minor children to malls or commercial places.
Local governments are also allowed the power to set limits on the migration of persons based on age and comorbidities, according to lawyer Jose Edgardo Uy, head of Cagayan de Oro’s (CDO) Regulatory Compliance Board and the Economic Cluster.
“The city’s Emergency Operation Center has already discussed this, and the parameters are currently being refined. As a result, unless an official advisory is published, nothing will be done. Please refrain from tagging minors in those locations “On Sunday, he made a Facebook post.
Uy said the local government is aware that people’s desire to go shopping with their kids “has been revived,” but he urged them not to forget that the virus that causes Covid-19 is still present.
“The fact that CDO is on Alert Level 2 does not mean that the virus has stopped lurking around us, causing health and medical issues, or even death. The only exception is when minors can get needs on their own, such as eat or seek medical treatment in mall clinics, but they must be accompanied by their parents and must leave the mall shortly afterward “he stated
Mayor Oscar Moreno has shortened the curfew hours from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. because the Alert Level was dropped.
According to Moreno, the gradual relaxation of quarantine laws is aimed at allowing more people to work and more enterprises to open and operate in order to generate revenue.
“However, if our activities do not include important tasks such as working and generating money, we should not venture outside. Atong ibangon ang ekonomiya dili nato ibangon ang virus “he stated
As of Nov. 4, CDO had 524 active Covid-19 cases, with 18,888 of the total 20.251 affected having recovered.
