Mayor Armando Domilod issued Executive Order No. 32 imposing the curfew hours and penalty to violators to limit the movement of person as part of the measures in preventing the entry of the disease.
“The municipality maintains its COVID-19 free status, however, cases in the adjacent provinces continue to rise so there’s a need to implement curfew hours to protect such status,” Domilod stated.
The curfew hours will start at 8:00 PM until 5:00AM and shall be strictly observed by adults and minors. Exempted are personnel of state forces, Bureau of Fire and Protection, medical personnel, Philippine Red Cross, barangay officials and peace keeping action teams and duly authorized front liners and emergency responders and other essential service workers.
A barricade will be placed across the road at the quarantine checkpoints during the curfew hours except for health emergencies. In case of emergency, the Municipal Police Station or the concerned punong barangay may be contacted by attending health workers, patient or guardians for assistance.
Violators of the curfew hours will render a minimum four hours community service while unauthorized person found out to have removed the barricade during the curfew for reasons other than health emergency shall serve 40 hours of community service.
