DANAO City Mayor Ramon Nito Durano, through Executive Order No. 7, S. 2021, has ordered the closure of private and public beaches in the city from April 1 (Holy Thursday) to 4 (Easter Sunday).
This is to ensure that there will be no mass gatherings this long weekend that can lead to the transmission of Covid-19.
However, those who have confirmed bookings in hotels and resorts can still push through with their plans, provided that they comply with the minimum health standards.
Swimming pools in the city are allowed to operate but only for stay-in guests, from 5:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Parties are also banned, but events that have been booked such as weddings, are allowed.
Discos, drinking and impromptu gatherings, however, are strictly not allowed.
Durano said this is to help curb the rise of Covid-19 cases in the city.
Danao has 31 active cases. It has a total of 563 cases, 497 recoveries and 35 deaths since the start of the pandemic. (ANV / CCP)
