The city government of Cadiz in Negros Occidental yesterday announced that they are reopening the city’s park to the public following months of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In an executive order signed by Mayor Salvador Escalante, Jr., he decided to reopen the park after receiving recommendations from local stakeholders such as the Cadiz City Inter-Agency Task Force, Peace and Order Council, Cadiz City Anti-Drug Abuse Council, and Liga ng mga Barangay.
Escalante also introduced several salient points which needed to be followed while inside the park’s premises.
Visitors at the park are required to show their Cadiz Contact Tracing System QR card upon entry, and they must wear their face masks and face shields, as well as observe physical distancing at all times.
Proper disposal of waste must also be followed while in the premises.
Escalante added the Cadiz City police and the City Enforcement Unit will be deployed to the premises in order to ensure that the basic health and safety protocols must be complied with./DGB, WDJ
