ANGELES City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. has asked barangay leaders to serve as role models to their respective constituents.

The mayor issued the statement as he directed the village officials to enforce government regulations to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

"Tayo po ang maging mabuting ehemplo sa ating mga kababayan," Lazatin told the barangay leaders.

He cited the increasing number of coronavirus disease (Covid-19) cases in the city.

Lazatin mentioned the measures to prevent the spread of the virus, including the ban of gathering like birthday parties, wearing of face mask and shields and social distancing, among others.

"Kabilang sa mga regulasyon ay ang pag iwas sa pagdaos ng anumang uri ng party, pagsuot ng face mask at face shield sa lahat ng oras, pagdala ng quarantine pass tuwing lalabas ng bahay, at pagiwas sa pagtambay sa daan," the mayor said.

Lazatin also directed restaurant managements to stop accepting events like parties and other social gatherings inside their respective establishments.

The City Government recorded 154 Covid-19 cases, with nine deaths and 62 recovered patients as of August 16, 2020.
