CLOSED for two weeks due to the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine, stocks used in municipal hall, other offices and residential homes have already gone down and are nearing depletion.

To the answer to the need, Mayor Romeo Salda issued executive order no.15-2020 setting a two-day window period for auto-supplies, hardware, office supply, electrical stores to open April 1 and 2 from eight in the morning to five in the afternoon.

The mayor added there is a need to replenish office supplies, spare parts for maintenance of vehicles being used by front liners, essential utility workers and those transporting supplies to critical offices and supplies utilized in residential homes.

Salda added hardware stores will not sell construction materials in view of the temporary suspension of construction but only those materials used in making personal protective equipment (PPE) are allowed to be sold.

He said stores should be strict in implementing and observing physical distancing and wearing of masks. (Lauren Alimondo)
