·1 min read

STARTING Thursday, December 30, 2021, the Cebu City Government and its partners will hold a massive clearing operation or "Oplan Barug Sugbo" as a way to deal with the damage left by Typhoon Odette in the City.

The mandate was made after Mayor Michael Rama signed Executive Order 152, which declares a city-wide observance of an Enhanced Citywide Qualitative Health and Sanitation (ECQ-HS) Drive in the city Wednesday, December 29, 2021.

"Oplan Barug Sugbo" directs the active participation of all private and government institutions and other stakeholders.

The ECQ-HS will be implemented on Thursday, December 30, and January 2, 2022, within the city.

A mandatory Stay-at-Home Order will also be implemented and movement outside residence shall only be allowed for purposes of clean-up, accessing necessities, and for work.

In a press conference Wednesday, December 29, Rama said that the police have already been informed to implement the EO.

Rama said that the ECQ-HS directive is similar to the scenario during the implementation of the Enhanced Community Quarantine.

"We just have to go back when we used to have the ECQ (Enhanced Community Quarantine)," said Rama. (IRT)
