NATIONAL Capital Region Police Office director Major General Debold M. Sinas yesterday ordered all his men manning Quarantine Control Points in Metro Manila to allow the unhampered passage of all staff, crew and other personnel of the Jollibee Food Chain amid a strong public clamor.
However, he said employees and crew of Jollibee, Chowking. Greenwich, Mang Inasal and Burger King will only be allowed unhampered passage in their QCPs if they are in their prescribed uniform and proper IDs and wearing face masks.
Delivery personnel of the giant food chain should also be in possession of the receipt of the items to be delivered and must be wearing protective equipment such as face mask, gloves, boots and if possible gowns or jackets for their own protection.
Sinas said he issued the order in the wake of a request from the Jollibee Food Chain management to be allowed to resume their operations amid a clamor from the public for easy access and delivery of food on top of their table.
Sinas said that they expect the move which will allow the staff and crew of the giant food chains to prepare and deliver processed food to somehow help control the influx of people in wet markets and groceries and supermarkets during the Enhanced Community Quarantine period.
