0 14

Mayor Stephen Palmares has banned mass gatherings in response to the rising cases of coronavirus disease (Covid-19) in Passi City.

Palmares said the influx of large numbers of people to events like birthdays, baptism, wedding receptions, church gatherings, fiestas, seminars, and workshops could lead to more Covid-19 infections.

Though allowed under the modified enhanced community quarantine status, the mayor deemed it prudent to prohibit such events. (https://bit.ly/2TE8Ndc)
