RESORTS in the City of San Fernando were inspected on June 29 to determine their compliance with health and safety protocols, as they are now allowed to operate under modified general community quarantine (MGCQ).

The City Government of San Fernando's Task Force Wash (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) led the inspection to ensure compliance with Executive Order (EO) CMO2020-046.

The EO was issued by Mayor Edwin Santiago in response to the MGCQ guidelines of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases that allow indoor and outdoor non-contact sports, including swimming, provided that minimum health standards are implemented.

Dunn Patrick Imana, City Health Office-Environmental Health and Sanitation Division (CHO-EHSD) chief, said among the major aspects that were checked were the resorts' and their employees' compliance with physical distancing measures, wearing of face mask and other personal protective equipment, frequent hand washing/use of alcohol, and regular disinfection within their premises.

Imana said the chlorine content of swimming pools and potability of drinking water being served to the clients are also regularly monitored by the division.

Apart from securing a certificate from the Department of Tourism, the resorts in the city are also required to acquire a permit to operate from the City Business License and Permit Division prior to their reopening. (PR)
