Parañaque City cancelled the celebration of its founding anniversary on February 13, including Valentines Day concerts in hotels and field trips of more than 20 schools in the city amid the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus.

According to Mayor Edwin Olivarez, he decided to cancel such activities to make the city free from the virus.

At the same time, Olivarez also came out with a warning to all Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGO) in the city to strictly follow the health sanitation and protection guidelines of the Department of Health (DOH) to prevent the spread of the disease.

Olivarez also identified as at risk the five barangays in the city where around 3,000 to 4,000 Chinese nationals are working at POGO.

He identified the five barangays that are being strictly monitored as: Barangays Baclaran,Tambo, LaHuerta, Sto. Nino and Don Galo.

He also said that aside from POGOs, the city health office and barangays were also ordered to monitor hotels, restaurants, malls and condominium units in the city frequented by Chinese tourists that they also must observe the health guidelines set by the DOH for protection of their employees and customers.

Olivarez said that failure to comply will result first with the issuance of a warning, then sanctions or closure of their business establishments.

Olivarez said also directed all business establishments to observe proper hygiene by placing hand sanitizers, using face masks, clean toilets and proper waste management.

He also said they already set-up an isolation tent in the city to conduct tests on possible patients.
