President Rodrigo Duterte has declared Thursday, October 8, as a special non-working day in Koronadal City in South Cotabato.

Executive Secretary Salvador C. Medialdea by the authority of the President issued Proclamation No. 1025 on October 1 for the holiday declaration to mark the celebration of Koronadal’s 20th Charter Anniversary.

“It is but fitting and proper that the people of the City of Koronadal be given full opportunity to celebrate and participate in the occasion with appropriate ceremonies,” he said.

But Medialdea said the celebration should be subject to community quarantine, social distancing, and other public health measures.
