THE Binmaley government banned anew swimming in the town’s coastal areas to prevent the further local transmission of COVID-19 among residents and visitors.
Mayor Simplicio Rosario said the prohibition is pursuant to the resolution of the Municipal Task Force against beach swimming, mass gathering, youth camps and other sporting events amid the persistent threat of the virus.
Rosario said walking, jogging, biking and driving along the baywalk are allowed.
He reiterated that curfew hours from 9:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. will be strictly imposed so restaurants will be closed.
Municipal Ordinance No. 7 series 2020 stipulates that any person violating the curfew hours will be fined P2,500.00 or imprisonment of seven days or both such fine and imprisonment at the discretion of the court.
The municipal government also imposed liquor ban last week.
In an Executive Order issued on Tuesday, Mayor Rosario said selling, buying and drinking of liquor and other alcoholic beverages in the town are prohibited
This was recommended by the Municipal Task Force as part of the measures to combat the transmission of the virus.
Rosario stressed that serving and consumption of liquor and alcoholic beverages in public and in all establishments or while inside private premises but in open and public view is prohibited.
A business establishment that violates the ban will lose its business permit, he warned.
He reminded town’s residents that the restrictions under the modified general community quarantine (MGCQ) will be in effect until Jan. 31.
As of Monday, Dec. 4, Binmaley reported 84 confirmed Covid-19 cases; 24 active cases; 54 recoveries and 6 deaths. (Jerick Pasiliao/Eva Visperas)
