Manila to toughen restrictions in Blumentritt market
The city government of Manila will toughen the restrictions in public markets and grocery stores in Blumentritt to regulate foot traffic in the area during the enhanced community quarantine.
The new restrictions came following reports of an influx of market-goers who allegedly failed to observe social distancing guidelines while shopping in Blumentritt on April 14.
The Manila Public Information Office (PIO) attributed the surge in customers to the recent closure of Balintawak Market in Quezon City. Three entry and exit points at Blumentritt corner Rizal Avenue, Leonor Rivera Street corner Antipolo Street, and Blumentritt corner Aurora Boulevard, will be opened.
New window hours will also be implemented to ensure social distancing among market-goers. Manila City residents will be allowed in the area from 5 a.m. to 12 p.m., while those who are not residents of the city can go from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Wholesale buyers can visit the area from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The new measures will be enforced by the Manila Traffic and Parking Bureau, Department of Public Services, Manila Barangay Bureau and the Manila Markets Administration Office, the Manila PIO said.
Latest data from the city government showed that there are 323 coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases in Manila, with 42 deaths and 27 recovered patients.
