NO PRIOR booking, no entry.
Thus states Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Junard Chan’s latest executive order, which prohibits beach visitors in the city during Holy Week unless they have confirmed room reservations in hotels and resorts.
The restriction will apply to both residents and non-residents of Lapu-Lapu City and will cover both private and public beaches from Monday, March 29, to Easter Monday, April 4, 2021.
Police at checkpoints will check prior bookings in hotels and resorts as part of measures aimed at preventing transmission of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).
Hotels and resorts must also limit their guests to 50 percent of capacity to ensure physical distancing. Violators will be issued a citation for violating policies imposed by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases.
Minors below 15 and senior citizens above 65 as well as pregnant women and sickly persons are required to stay at home, Chan also instructed.
