Taguig issues rules for businesses

Taguig City asked business establishments to have less face-to-face communication, better observance of hand hygiene among employees, more intense efforts to disinfect common areas and promote a healthier lifestyle.

These are just some of the guidelines under Executive Order No. 7 which Mayor Lino Cayetano signed on May 12, specifying the requirements for businesses that had been allowed to reopen by the national government under a Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ).

Based on the EO, employers also need to ensure that workers are provided safe shuttle services, personal protective equipment, free medicines and vitamins, a trusty healthcare plan, and referrals to specialists for mental health for those who may need them. Work spaces also need to adapt to social distancing protocols.

Companies must also prepare an Infectious Disease Preparedness and Response Plan which should specify how management can prevent transmissions, handle suspected cases, and report to CEDSU or the COVID-19 hotline.

A “Safe City Seal of Compliance” awaits businesses that will follow the city’s comprehensive guidelines. Firms that fail to meet the requirements face suspension or revocation of permits and licenses, or the closure of their establishment.

Those who wish to do outdoor exercises, in compliance with the advice of City Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance Unit (CEDSU), must maintain a distance of at least 5 meters with other individuals. Group exercises and workout sessions will be prohibited.
