Vendors and store owners are reminded of their responsibilities to observe the health protocols against COVID-19 even as they try to earn a living.
The health marshals under the supervision of Executive Assistant for Security Concerns retired General Rey Lyndon Lawas patrolled and inspected street vendors and stores to inspect their compliance to the minimum health protocols such as the mandatory wearing of face masks, social distancing and provisions of hand washing facilities or alcohol inside the premises.
Complaints have been made of vendors occupying the sidewalks and stores not regulating the entry of costumers, which cause overcrowding.
Store managements are reminded that they are mandated to impose physical distancing inside their premises, provide alcohol and sanitizers to employees and clients and conduct daily disinfection to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Parents are again reminded to keep their children at home and avoid bringing them to public places.
Appropriate penalties will be imposed to the management and persons who will continue to violate the health protocols in accordance to local ordinances and national law.
