In support of the stringent social distancing measures to prevent the spread of Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), the Navotas City government on Sunday passed an ordinance implementing an 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew effective 16 March 2020.

City Ordinance No. 2020-06 also required business establishments to close at 8 p.m. to prevent non-essential gatherings beyond curfew.

Mayor Toby Tiangco urged the public to abide by the ordinance and help the city government keep Navotas COVID-free.

It exempts persons travelling for medical and humanitarian reasons, transiting to the airport for travel abroad, providing basic services and public utilities, transiting to and from work, and trading fish and similar products at the Navotas Fish Port Complex and all other markets and facilities.

Establishments not covered of the ordinance included foodshops except restaurants, pubs and bars within Navotas serving alcoholic drinks or allowing videoke/karaoke; supermarkets; pharmacies; clinics; and banks.

Those found violating the ordinance will be meted with a fine of P1,000 for the first offense, P2,500 for the second offense, and P5,000 and/or one month imprisonment for the third offense.

The existing discipline hours ordinance for minors shall remain in effect except for the adjustment of time to 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
