During the activity, the teams reiterated provisions under Executive Order No. 25, s. 2021, especially the reimposition of the liquor ban.
The PNP together with the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction & Management Office (MDRRMO) were also directed to conduct surveillance and monitoring operations at the barangays to ensure compliance of residents with the liquor ban and curfew hours.
Under GCQ, stores are temporarily prohibited from selling liquors, alcoholic beverages, coconut wines, and nature wines as consumption of said drinks encourages public gatherings and may heighten the chance of COVID-19 spread.
Yesterday, June 7, 2021, the municipality recorded a total of 8 new COVID-19 cases – the highest single-day tally of new positive cases since the outbreak of the virus in early 2020.
LGU-Camalig has since intensified its response to the rising of cases through implementation of stricter and regular prevention and control protocols in the town.
Pursuant to Executive Order No. 16, s. 2021 of the Provincial Government of Albay (PGA), the GCQ in the entire province, excluding the municipalities of Rapu-Rapu and Jovellar, is expected to take effect until June 15, 2021.
