Cebu City passes a law granting vaxxed people extra benefits.

Beginning in January of next year, the Cebu City government will be more aggressive in forcing residents to get completely vaccinated against coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) before visiting enterprises and transacting business in private and public offices.

Mayor Michael Rama, according to Lt. Col. Wilbert Parilla, Cebu City Police Office deputy director for operations, issued a new executive order on Thursday that enforced severe requirements in preparation for Christmas and Sinulog.

In a news conference, Parilla said, “The new instructions and rules encompass unique activities of social, political, cultural, traditional, historical, educational, and religious value and the like.”

He stated that from next year, all workplaces and establishments will be compelled to check the vaccination cards of their clients and customers, with the police enforcing the regulation.

The most important policy, he said, will require all institutions and offices, private and public, to distribute information that they will only cater to or give admission to fully immunized individuals.

“It’s clear that if you aren’t properly vaccinated, you won’t be able to use government or private-sector services or conduct business,” he added.

Establishments must also not allow minors aged 12 to 17 who are not completely vaccinated, even if they are accompanied by their parents or responsible adults, under the new regulation.

This, he claims, will motivate children and teenagers to seek inoculation for full protection against Covid-19.

In addition, beginning in January 2022, only fully vaccinated people will be allowed to enter indoor and outdoor venues.

All visitors entering the city by land, sea, or air will be required to show their vaccination card with QR code and proof of identity to those who have been vaccinated, as well as a negative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test result valid for 72 hours or a negative antigen or saliva test result valid for 48 hours to those who have not been vaccinated.

According to Parilla, the new municipal curfew hours are from midnight to 3 a.m., with minors under the age of 18 having curfew hours from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. the next day.

However, authorized persons outside residence (APOR) will be exempted from the curfew legislation to allow unrestricted operations of midnight economies in the city, such as business process outsourcing firms, he said.

The new instruction will also apply to the current restriction on booze sales, as Parilla stated that public drinking will continue to be forbidden even after the New Year.
