Tarpaulins highlighting Municipal Ordinance No. 15, s. 2021 are now placed on conspicuous areas to maximize the pandemic response and recovery efforts of LGU-Camalig.
The tarpaulin cites strict directives of the local government specifically the mandatory wearing of face masks and observance of social/physical distancing, along with fines and penalties for violations.
Additional tarpaulins are set to be placed on establishments at the commercial district, barangay halls, and frequented/high-traffic areas.
