Night Market In Baguio City Suspended After Crowd Control Lapses
BAGUIO CITY – Baguio City recently suspended its famous night market just hours after its reopening due to “lapses” in crowd control.
The Public Information Office of the city said in its post that Mayor Benjamin Magalong has directed fellow local executives to have a meeting and conduct an assessment on the operation of the well-famed night market, according to a report from CNN Philippines.
“Identify our weak points and vulnerabilities and discuss solutions. I want feedback as soon as possible,”
The reopening of the night marked was a portion of the summer capital’s attempt to restart the economy and restore livelihood amid the COVID-19 crisis.
The mayor, however, said that health and safety protocols should not be compromised with the easing of business restrictions.
Magalong also said earlier that there will be traditional Christmas activities that Baguio City would have to avoid due to COVID-19, based on the report.
“There are some traditional activities that we will avoid like Christmas caroling from house to house, like Simbang Gabi, limited indoor gathering like family and clan gatherings,”
“Christmas in Baguio this time should be observed in calmness unlike the festive, jubilant and carefree mood of the past. This time we shall endeavor to make it a safe and healthy Christmas,”
