Market, plaza in Manapla to be closed

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

The public market and plaza, and business establishments in Manapla, Negros Occidental will be temporarily closed on June 18 and 25, to contain the spread and surge of Covid-19 infections, Mayor Manuel Escalante III said.

Escalante, in Executive Order 26, series of 2021 he issued, also ordered the adoption of work from home arrangement for municipal hall employees on those days.

The Provincial Incident Management Team reported that Manapla has 23 active cases, as of June 9.

There is a compelling reason to initiate measures to contain the spread of the virus and to control the spike of the cases, Escalante said, noting that Manapla had 213 total confirmed cases, with three deaths, and 23 active infections.

This will also pave the way for the conduct of disinfection and sanitation in those areas, he added.

Business establishments exempted from the temporary closure are drugstores, banks, remittance centers, and gasoline stations, the EO issued on June 9 stated.

Meanwhile, the Office of Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson at the Capitol in Bacolod City was placed on temporary lockdown yesterday for disinfection and contact tracing, after two of its workers tested positive for Covid-19.*
