Tiangco cited the park has been recently crowded by many people, either Navoteño or non-residents, to do public exercise or just hanging out with friends, especially during Saturdays and Sundays.

He said people often forgot to observe social distancing and usually flocked together.

"Hangad po nating pigilan ang mga pagkakataon na magkaroon ng malakihang pagtitipon-tipon dahil maaari itong maging superspreader event o aktibidad na pagmumulan ng malawakang hawaan ng Covid-19 (We want to avoid the chances of having larger gatherings in the park because it may cause a superspreader event or activity that will cause massive Covid-19 infections)," he added.

City hall locked down

Meanwhile, the Navotas City Hall will be placed under lockdown from Feb. 24 at 8:01 p.m. to Feb. 28 at 11:59 p.m., after 24 of its employees tested positive for Covid-19.

All city government transactions will be suspended during the lockdown.

The affected areas include the City Hall Annex, the office of the Navoserve, and the Office of the Franchising and Permits Processing Unit.

Concerning the lockdown, Tiangco has asked the City Council to extend the deadlines for tax payments and other arrears from Feb. 28 to Mar. 5, 2021.

The public is urged to contact the hotline number 8281-8531, for inquiries regarding the affected services.

"Ayaw po nating maghigpit ngunit para sa kabutihan ng lahat, kailangan po nating gawin ito. Inaasahan po namin ang inyong suporta at kooperasyon (We don't want to be strict but this is for the safety of everybody, we need to do this and we are hoping for your support and cooperation)," Tiangco told residents.
