48 apprehended in ‘Oplan Bulabog’ operations

·1 min read

AT LEAST 48 people were apprehended by local police in Cebu City on Monday night, Jan. 10, 2022, for their failure to follow health protocols including complying with the city’s curfew ordinance.

They were caught during the Cebu City Police Office’s (CCPO) implementation of its Oplan Bulabog, which apprehends violators of curfew and health protocols such as non-wearing of mask in public spaces and non-observance of social distancing.

Lt. Col. Wilbert Parilla, CCPO’s deputy director for operation, said they revived their Oplan Bulabog operations following orders from the Cebu City Government to strengthen the implementation of health protocols now that the number of Covid-19 cases in the city are increasing again.

Parilla said the other reason for the renewal of Oplan Bulabog operations is that they also received information that some establishments, especially those serving liquor, are no longer strictly following health protocols set by the City, including requiring their patrons to present their vaccination cards.

“We can’t stressed this enough to owners of resto bars and other related establishments. They have to comply with the City’s health protocols or they could face closure,” Parilla said.

During their operations on Monday night, Jan. 10, the CCPO personnel inspected around 123 establishments in the city.

Of the 48 that were apprehended, 34 were adults.

Twenty-nine were found to have violated the city’s curfew policy and 19 were caught without wearing their face masks. (AYB / JKV)
