Pasay businesses allowed to operate at full capacity

account_balancePasay News account_circleHannah Santos chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

The Pasay City government has allowed some businesses to operate at full capacity as it adjusted its rules on community quarantine, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

Mayor Emi Calixto, in a memorandum, was quick to point out that these establishments must still follow strict health protocol to be able to operate including the wearing of face masks, face shields, checking of temperature, and hand disinfection.

“I wish to remind everybody to follow the E.M.I. habit: E-ensure to always wash your hand; M-mask is a must; and I-implement physical distancing,” Rubiano said.


The mayor said the decision to relax guidelines was based on an agreement reached by Metro Manila Mayors to amend certain regulations of the general community quarantine.

Among the businesses allowed to operate at 100 percent capacity are:

· Financial services such as money exchange, insurance, reinsurances, lending companies and non-compulsory

· Legal and accounting

·  Management consultancy activities

·  Publishing and printing services

·  Film, music and tv production

· Recruitment and placement agencies for overseas employment

· Other services such as photography, fashion, industrial, graphic and interior design

· Wholesale and retail trade of motor vehicles, motorcycles and bicycles including their parts and components

· Repair of motor in physical “subject further to pertinent guidelines issued by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)

· Non-leisure wholesale and retail establishment (mall-based or otherwise) such as mall-based government frontline services; hardware stores; clothing and accessories; bookstore and office supplies stores; baby or infant care supplies; pet shops, pet food and pet care supplies; IT communications and electronic equipment; flower, jewelry, novelty, antique, perfume shops; toy store (playgrounds and amusement area are closed); music stores, art galleries (selling only) and firearms and ammunition trading  establishment

Rubiano said hotels and accommodation establishments with four- or five-star ratings from the Department of Tourism (DOT) and have obtained a DOT certificate to operate for “staycation” may accept “staycation” guests while travel services may also operate at 100 percent capacity subject to minimum health protocols.

She said that other businesses allowed to operate are drive-in cinemas, internet cafes, and computer shops of at least 30 square meters in size provided they have a city business permit and maintain physical distance at least one meter between workstations.

The mayor added that testing, tutorial, and review centers may also operate, provided students must be at least 18 years old and instructors and students in a room must be at least two meters apart from each other.

Although establishments may operate at regular capacity, Rubiano said, “They are encouraged to adopt alternative or flexible work arrangements so that not all employees are physically present on work premises at the same time.”

The same memorandum also advised people who are above 65 years old, those with health risks, pregnant women to stay at home while those who are below 18 years old should be accompanied by their parent/s when going outside their residences for obtaining essential goods and services only.

Rubiano added that open air parks such as the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) complex, SM by the Bay, and other similar establishments/areas “may operate at the discretion of their management, for non-contact and non-group exercise or sports activities such as walking, jogging, swimming, bicycling, tennis, badminton and others.”

Gyms and fitness centers, sports facilities, barbershops, and pet grooming centers may operate at 75 percent capacity subject to certain limitations such as the arrangement of equipment that should be at least two meters apart and regular sanitization of equipment and lockers.
