0

Mayor Jerry Treñas plans to close all resto bars in Iloilo City starting tomorrow until the end of the month.

A total of 13 establishments in the city were ordered closed recently for violating the liquor ban.

Treñas expressed dismay over this blatant disregard of his executive order that set guidelines for the city’s general community quarantine. (https://bit.ly/2K44Blq)

Several establishments kept on violating the ban on alcoholic drinks despite several warnings, the mayor lamented.

“There are certain rules we just have to follow. Closure orders will be served on violators,” he added.

Treñas said during this pandemic, the city government cannot allow restaurateurs and bar operators to make a joke of the public health safety protocols.
