‘No face shield, no entry’ in Camp Crame starting Aug. 17

MANILA – Police personnel, civilian employees, and visitors will be required to wear face shields, aside from face masks, inside Camp Crame starting Monday, a police official said on Saturday.

Lt. Gen. Camilo Cascolan, Philippine National Police (PNP) deputy chief for administration, ordered the Headquarters Support Service (HSS) to implement the directive as the country grapples with the steep rise in coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) infections.

“We appeal to all to observe health protocols for the sake of everyone’s safety against the contagion,” Cascolan said in a statement.

In an advisory, HSS chief, Brig. Gen. Alexander Sampaga said curfew hours inside the camp would still be imposed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., except for PNP personnel who are on duty.

The HSS also advised offices and units that use the North Wing Parking Area to transfer to the PNP Transformation Oval Parking Area.

The PNP Health Service, meanwhile, established a Daily Triage Area at the North Wing Parking Area for PNP personnel starting on Saturday.

Earlier, Interior Secretary Eduardo Año said face shields would serve as an additional layer of protection against Covid-19, particularly in areas where some people do not observe physical distancing.

The mandatory use of face shields in public transport and workplaces imposed by the departments of transportation and labor took effect on Saturday. (PNA)
