On Friday (November 27, 2020), Parañaque City Mayor Edwin Olivarez said that the Metro Manila Council agreed to suspend Christmas parties in public offices this year. Private sectors are also discouraged from holding Christmas event on the upcoming holiday season.
Previously, the Philippine government ordered the Filipino people to limit the celebration of Christmas Day within the family members. The guidelines only allow a maximum of 10 people to join gatherings under the general community quarantine.
Olivarez also announced that the mayors of Metro Manila will ban the traditional Christmas caroling to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus disease in the country. A task force will be also created to monitor the no-caroling policy.
“Naglabas na kami ng executive order na walang physical caroling na mangyayari dito sa darating na Kapaskuhan,” Olivarez said.
Metro Manila mayors recommends the ban of caroling, which has been approved by the inter-agency task force amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
