Spot checks to ensure Baguio businesses are adhering to the rules
The local administration has carried out surprise inspections of businesses to ensure that they are complying with health and safety regulations.
In a phone interview on Thursday, City Information Officer Aileen Refuerzo said that at least 41 businesses, including restaurants, banks, salons, and drug stores, were randomly inspected last week to see if they complied with Mayor Benjamin Magalong’s Executive Order No. 5-2022, which limits the operational capacities of various industries.
The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases placed the city on Alert Level 3 as a result of this (IATF).
“For example, a 30% criterion was applied for fully vaccinated individuals solely in indoor settings for food and beverage retail facilities with dine-in services, while a 50% threshold was imposed for companies with outdoor eating areas,” she said.
The establishment’s compliance with the guideline permitting only fully vaccinated individuals to dine-in or prioritizing vaccinated clients in the provision of services is also included in the spot inspection, according to Refuerzo.
Those who were found to be non-compliant, she claimed, were given a warning “warnings and notices of violation (NOV).”
The cancellation of the establishment’s safety seal certification, which allows for an increase of 10% in the permitted capacity, is one of the punishments.
In view of a new wave of coronavirus disease (Covid-19) cases suspected to be caused by the extremely infectious Omicron strain, she said the municipal administration continues to emphasize the need of closely adhering to protocols to assist safeguard the health and safety of its consumers.
“We need to work together and help each other to stop this new surge because it will have an impact not only on residents’ health but also on the city’s economy,” says one resident “she stated
The Local Council had previously passed a resolution urging all city businesses to require consumers to provide vaccination cards, certificates, or quick response (QR) codes as proof of immunization.
