Labella: No decision yet on liquor ban

He needs one to two weeks to make the assessment and come up with a decision, according to Labella.

The city mayor also appealed for understanding from business owners. (

The liquor ban, he added, has been effective in bringing down the rate of COVID infections in the city.
