MANILA — Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief, Police General Guillermo Lorenzo T Eleazar advised event organizers, flea markets, bazaar managers to cooperate with local government units to ensure health protocols are observed properly by their patrons.

PGen Eleazar pointed out that while the different police offices and unit commanders have been tasked to deploy more police personnel in expected areas of convergence as well as to continue coordinating with LGUs in enforcing minimum public health standards (MPHS), event organizers should do their part in ensuring health protocols are strictly followed.

“I would advise organizers of tiangges or bazaars to work with LGUs to ensure that participants in their activities strictly observe MPHS, particularly physical distancing,” the PNP Chief said in anticipation of events that would be organized for the Holiday season.

“Mahalaga lalo ang pagsunod sa health protocols partikular na ang physical distancing kung may kinalaman sa pagkain ang event, maski al fresco dining, dahil kinakailangan ditong mag-alis ng face mask,” PGen Eleazar pointed out.

He reminded the public to not let their guards down against COVID-19 particularly when they’re busy shopping at bargain stores.

PGen Eleazar said, “Huwag sana tayo magpakakumpiyansa sa pamimili sa Divisoria o sa mga tiangge lalo’t siksikan. Baka ang mangyari ay nakapamili nga tayo ng mura ay mapapagastos naman tayo ng malaki sa pagpapagamot.”

He stressed, “Pinapaalala ko sa ating mga kababayan na ang kaunting pagluwag sa mga panuntunan ay hindi nangangahulugang wala na ang banta ng COVID-19 at wala na rin ang panganib na dumami muli ang mga kaso.”

“Kailangang magtulungan tayo para mapanatili o mas mapababa pa ang mga naitatalang COVID-19 cases,” the PNP Chief added. (ai/mtvn)
