Despite the decreased alert level, Cebu City’s health regulations remain in place.

CEBU CITY, Philippines – Despite the decline in the daily tally of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) cases, the local police reminded Cebuanos on Monday that the restrictions on fundamental health protocols have not been lifted yet.

Despite the downgraded community quarantine classification here, Lt. Col. Wilbert Parilla, Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) deputy director for operations, said in a press conference that Mayor Michael Rama’s directions on the curfew and adherence of health protocols are still in effect.

The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) placed the city, along with all other locations in the Central Visayas region, under Alert Level 2 from February 16 to 28.

Parilla, on the other hand, stated that now that the classification has been lowered, enforcement of the directives will be more flexible.

“However, just because we claim we’re relaxed doesn’t mean we won’t arrest violators.” But, in a way, we witness voluntary compliance with the existing curfew and public health norms not just from the institution owners, but also from the consumers, particularly in restobars,” he remarked.

He added the mayor’s directives will be strictly enforced in the city’s interior sections, where infractions are more egregious than in the city center.

Meanwhile, Rama reported a decrease in Covid-19 instances in the city, allowing residents to move forward while maintaining vigilance against the virus.

The city’s daily number of cases has decreased from more than 6,000 on the first day of February, with total current illnesses now at 1,298 as of Sunday.

“Covid-19 has dropped to nothing, and we have vaccinated our adult population over our minimum aim.” “We should be prepared quickly for better days ahead, which will enable us to rise up and move forward,” Rama stated.

The mayor, on the other hand, stated that residents must always protect their health and be aware of the virus as well as other ailments.
