100 quarantine violators nabbed in Angeles City

ANGELES CITY -- The City Government has apprehended more than 100 individuals who violated Covid-19 safety regulations, Mayor Carmelo "Pogi" Lazatin Jr, said.

"Sa pagiikot natin sa buong siyudad, nakahuli na tayo ng mahigit 100 indibidual na lumalabag sa mga itinakdang regulasyon ng lokal na pamahalaan," the mayor said.

The violators were issued citation tickets as mandated under the guidelines of the Department of Health and the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF), according to Lazatin.

"Alinsunod sa Department of Health (DOH) at Inter Agency Task Force, agaran natin silang tineketan at pinagmulta ng P1,000 [each]. Ito ang kalakip na parusa para sa unang paglabag ng hindi pagsuot ng face mask tuwing sila ay lumalabas ng bahay," the local chief executive said.

The local government has also intensified its campaign to educate the people in its fight against the virus, Lazatin said.

"Ito ay upang lalong mapalawak pa ang kaalaman ng mga Angelenos at para mas maprotektahan nila ang kanilang mga sarili laban sa Covid-19," the mayor said.

Social gatherings are still prohibited, according to Lazatin.

"Mahigpit pa rin pong ipinagbabawal ang social gatherings, pagtambay sa labas ng bahay at paglabas ng mga menor de edad."

The City Government enforces curfew for all residents from 11 p.m. to 5: a.m. daily, the mayor said.

"Ang sinumang mahuli na lumalabag sa mga regulasyon ng pamahalaan ay atin ding huhuliin at pagmumultahin. Hindi po natin bibiruin ang mga matigas ang ulo, paparusahan po ang dapat parusahan lalo na kung ang ginagawa nilang paglabag ang nakakaapekto sa kaligtasan at kalusugan ng bawat Angeleno," Lazatin added.

Lazatin said the number of Covid-19 cases in the city had climbed to 91, as of Thursday.

Of the 91 cases, the mayor said 49 are active cases.

Over the past three days, three new cases were reported by the local health office.
