Angeles City allows dine-in restaurants at 30% capacity

THE Angeles City Government has allowed dine-in restaurants at 30-percent operating capacity.

Angeles City Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin Jr. released a memorandum on April 8, allowing dine-in customers in all food establishments in the city at a maximum capacity of 30 percent starting April 12.

The same memorandum stated that starting April 16, restaurants will be allowed to operate at 50-percent capacity subject to random inspection from the Business Permit and Licensing Division to ensure compliance with public health protocols.

These health protocols include wearing face masks and face shields upon entering the establishment, undergoing temperature checks, and filling out contact tracing forms.

Lazatin earlier prohibited dine-in restaurants as he adopted Pampanga Governor Dennis “Delta” Pineda’s Executive Order No. 5, which aimed to curb the growing number of Covid-19 cases in the province.

In his memorandum, Lazatin reiterated that the operation of gyms, fitness studios, sports facilities, bars, kid’s amusement centers and facilities remained suspended.

Holding of social events also remained suspended.

Religious gatherings will be allowed starting April 16, but only at 30-percent capacity inside the venue. Attendees outside should strictly practice social distancing and wear face masks and face shields.
