The booze ban in Bacolod City has been lifted, and the curfew hours have been reduced.
BACOLOD CITY, Philippines – Starting Tuesday, Bacolod changed to Alert Level 1, the lowest category in the country’s coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) alert level system, with Mayor Evelio Leonardia lifting the liquor ban and shortening curfew hours.
“The city government has demonstrated improvements in its management, control, and implementation of health, safety, and welfare programs to its constituents, while always cooperating with the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) alert level status prescribed from time to time,” Leonardia stated in Executive Order (EO) 9, series of 2022.
Daily curfew hours will now be observed from midnight to 4 a.m., rather than the previous 11 p.m. to 4 a.m., with exceptions for night shift workers, media practitioners, public emergencies such as fire, ambulance services, and other disaster or calamity-related events, and those requiring medical assistance onboard public utility or private vehicles.
Section 5 stipulated that the booze restriction would be lifted as long as the city remained on Alert Level 1.
Previously, only noon to 10 p.m. was allowed for the sale of liquor, wine, beer, or any other alcoholic or intoxicating beverage in public areas, as well as the sale and consumption of such alcoholic beverages in designated public locations.
Leonardia praised the people of Bacolod for their cooperation and assistance in adhering to the Covid-19 health regulations, noting that the city’s placement in the lowest alert level is proof that it is on the right road in dealing with the pandemic.
The IATF-EID updated rules on the nationwide implementation of the alert level system said that places under Alert Level 1 will have no restrictions on indoor and outdoor capacities, and that everyone, regardless of age or comorbidities, will be able to travel intrazonally and interzonally.
According to data from the Department of Health-Western Visayas (DOH-6) on Monday, Bacolod had only four new illnesses, bringing the total number of active cases to 210.
According to DOH-6 numbers as of February 28, the city’s Covid-19 immunization rate has already surpassed 123.22 percent, or 581,760 people, much above the objective of 472,139.
