“May mga naka-deploy tayong enforcers para sa pagpapatupad ng social distancing at health protocols lalo na sa community pantries, ‘ayuda’ payout, at sa vaccination sites. Of course, there will also be enforcers for traffic assistance,” TFTTM chief Dexter Cardenas said.
Mayor Joy Belmonte urged the residents to avoid going out unless it is necessary.

Nasa ilalim pa rin tayo ng MECQ at ipinagbabawal pa rin ang mass gathering ayon sa IATF guidelines (I call on our residents to stay in your homes. We are still under the MECQ and mass gathering is still prohibited according to IATF guidelines),” Belmonte said.
