Palayan reimposes ban on liquor, mass gatherings, non-essential travel

PALAYAN CITY – City Mayor Adrianne Mae “Rianne” J. Cuevas has ordered the reimposition of a total liquor ban and the ban on all forms of mass gatherings and non-essential travels to the city as a precautionary measure against the spread of the COVID-19 in this capital city of Nueva Ecija.

In issuing Executive Order No. 09 dated April 2, 2021, Cuevas said a total ban on the selling, buying, consumption and drinking of liquor and other alcoholic beverages is re-imposed in the city effective immediately.

Mga mahal kong Palayanos, dahil po sa lumalalang kaso ng COVID-19 sa ating bansa, inaatasan ko po kayong lahat na sumunod sa mas pinaigting na protocol laban sa COVID-19,” the mayor posted on her Facebook page on Tuesday.

Bawal ang kahit na anong klase ng pagtitipon. Itinuturing namass gatheringang pagtitipon ng mayroong sampu o higit pang katao. At bawal din ang non-essential travel para sa mga residenteng nasa labas ng lungsod ng Palayan,” Cuevas stressed.

Hindi po muna pwedeng makapasok sa loob ng ating lungsod ang sinumang residente sa labas ng ating teritoryo kahit na po sila ay taga-Palayan kung wala naman pong mahalagang dahilan o layunin para pumunta sa Palayan,” she added.

Cuevas said she has directed the city police under Lt. Col. Santos D. Mera Jr. to immediately implement the order and monitor its strict compliance amid the surge of COVID-19 cases due to the fast-spreading new variants even as the province remains placed under the less strict modified general community quarantine (MGCQ).

Nakabantay po ang ating kapulisan 24/7 para sa mga lalabag sa mga alituntunin na ito. Ito rin po ay para sa kaligtasan ng ating mga sarili at ng ating mga mahal sa buhay, maraming salamat po at ingatan po natin ang bawat isa,” the mayor said.

As of April 4, this city has recorded 14 active cases with total of 150 confirmed infections, two deaths and 134 recovered. Of the city’s 20 barangays, Barangay Bo. Militar is tops with 46 confirmed cases followed by Bgy. Singalat with 23 cases and Fort Magsaysay (Army Camp) with 16.

Two new positive cases were added to the growing list of infections, tagged as Case No. 150 and 149 — a woman from Bgy. Manacnac and a man from Bgy. Ganaderia, who is a close contact of Case No. 146.
