Calamba Resort Gets Violation Ticket for Accepting Guest Amid MECQ
Authorities cited a violation ticket against a resort in Calamba, Laguna for allegedly operating and accepting guests under modified ECQ.
The resort in the province was discovered operating without a permit. Local authorities also found out that they are welcoming guests while the province was put under a modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ).
According to a GMA News story, the Calamba City Public Order and Safety Office (POSO) discovered two children inside the resort using a drone video. The owner of the said resort was reprimanded by Calamba POSO Chief Jeffrey Rodriguez for violating quarantine protocols.
“Ma’am tayo po ay matagal nang… mag iisang taon, isang taon na po tayong nasa MECQ o ‘yung pandemic na ito,” Rodriguez said.
“Paulit-ulit po ang ating national at local government na pagpapaalala para sa mga guidelines para sabihin niyo pong hindi niyo po alam,” he added.
The resort owner did not dispute that the compound was open to 20 guests from Paraaque City who were not part of his immediate family. The local government unit issued an infringement ticket to the resort, and it is now facing sanctions.
“Nagbigay po sila ng P5,000 kapalit po siguro na para hindi na sila tickitan o payagan o magpikit-mata ang ating mga opisyal ng Public Order and Safety para patuloy nilang magawa ‘yung kanilang mga aktibidades na ‘yan,” he said.
According to the barangay captain, the resort still does not have a permit to operate. The resort owner has yet to issue a comment about the apprehension.
