9 p.m. to 4 a.m. curfew hours remain in NegOcc

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

The shift from Modified General Community Quarantine status of Negros Occidental to a bit stricter GCQ may lead to some restrictions in the activities of Negrenses, starting July 1 until 31 this year, although curfew hours will remain from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m.

Under the GCQ restriction, Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson said yesterday that e-Sabong, or online cockfighting will be prohibited, amusement parks will be closed, while those 18 years old and below and 65 years old and above are prohibited from going out of their homes.

Entertainment and recreational venues, concert halls, theaters, fairs, playgrounds, kiddie rides, and the traditional cockfighting and cockpits will also be closed, Lacson said in Executive Order 21-33 he issued yesterday afternoon.

He also said that the Philippine National Police will continue to extend help in their respective local government units in the implementation of mandated health protocols.

CHURCH CAPACITY

While presidential spokesman Harry Roque announced during the briefing Monday night that 30 to 50 percent capacity in church gatherings under GCQ will be allowed, Lacson said he will opt for a maximum 30 percent capacity in Negros Occidental.

As to the liquor ban, Lacson said most local government units in Negros Occidental disallow drinking liquor in public places. But they can buy liquor and consume it in their homes, he added.

Lacson said what they have been enforcing under the MGCQ will still be the same under GCQ.*
