San Juan lifts liquor ban 

account_balanceSan Juan News account_circleNoah James chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

San Juan City followed the lead of other cities in Metro Manila in lifting the liquor ban on May 19.

Mayor Francis Zamora signed Ordinance No. 36 series of 2020, lifting the ban on the sale and consumption of alcoholic drinks in San Juan City.

The measure amended the previous city ordinance that imposed a city-wide liquor ban amid the threat of COVID-19.

“Consumption of alcoholic beverages of any kind is allowed as long as it is done inside of the house and physical distancing is strictly observed,” the ordinance read, emphasizing that drinking in public areas remains prohibited.

It was stated in the ordinance that there is a need to relax the liquor ban in San Juan City during the period of the modified enhanced community quarantine in Metro Manila for “economic reasons” to help retailers and other businesses in the city revive their sales amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

San Juan City is among the local government units (LGUs) in the National Capital Region (NCR) that recently eased its ban on alcoholic drinks.

The LGUs of Pasay, Quezon City, Marikina, and Caloocan earlier lifted their bans on the sale and consumption of alcoholic drinks in their respective jurisdictions.
