Hundred Island Festival pinagpaliban ng Alaminos LGU
IPINAGPALIBAN ng Alaminos City local government unit (LGU) ang annual celebration ng Hundrend Island Festival (HIF) at iba pang aktibidad ngayong Marso dahil sa banta ng coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
“The Department of Health (DOH), Department of the Interior and Local Government and the Department of Tourism issued a joint statement assuring the public that it is safe to organize and attend public gatherings, meetings, and festivals as long as all the precautionary measures are observed. Nonetheless, the city government postponed the festival and other related activities as a precautionary measure,” ani Alaminos City Mayor Arth Bryan Celeste.
Sa kanyang executive order 12 na ibinigay noong Biyernes, ayon kay Celeste isinama rin niya ang suspension ang mga off-campus activity alinsunod sa Department of Education (DepEd) memorandum number 15 series of 2020 na may pamagat na “First Set of Policy Directives of the DepEd’s Task Force COVID-19.”
“If this off-campus suspension is lifted by DepEd, all off-campus activities are hereby allowed, provided they must strictly implement the DOH guidelines,” ayon sa alkalde.
Samantala, ayon kay Celeste, ang paggamit ng mga pampublikong pasilidad na pag-aari ng LGU ay mayroong strictly implemented guidelines na ibinigay ng Department of Health. (Allan Bergonia)
