Workplaces to be checked to ensure compliance with EO on mass gathering – Mayor Sara


Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio said that workplaces and business establishments will be inspected to ensure compliance with her order to stop the spread of coronavirus disease.

Duterte-Carpio recently issued Executive Order No. 57, defining mass gathering of people that has more than 25 individuals.

“Our intention with the EO is to put accountability to the offices, establishments, and organizations in charge. If we say restaurants, restaurants will police themselves, and the city government team will inspect if they are enforcing the guidelines,” she said.

According to the EO, “all mass gatherings are prohibited except buses, banks, hospitals, restaurants and other similar gatherings where people are not gathered together for the same common purpose.”

Section 18 states that all events and activities for leisure, entertainment, sports, gaming, and amusement are prohibited.

The allowable gatherings can only be for personal milestones, urgent government and business purposes.

Duterte-Carpio reminded the Dabawenyos that Davao City is still under modified general community quarantine (MGCQ).
