Numbers of Reduce Face Mask Violators in Navotas Dropped After Imposing Change of Local Ordinance
Navotas City successfully reduced the face mask violators within the town after changing the local ordinance.
Navotas Mayor Toby Tiangco said that the number of face mask violators in the city has drastically dropped after implementing a new local ordinance in the area. The local government unit imposed a new sanction to the violators.
The LGU requires the offenders to undergo real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) tests to check if they are infected with the coronavirus disease. LGU would not require them to pay fine or doing community service.
“Mas kaunti na ngayon. Mas takot sila sa RT-PCR kesa sa fine or community service,” Tiangco said.
The city mayor also explained that the residents were afraid of more infectious coronavirus variants prompting them to take precautionary measures to avoid exposure. He also said that some residents are not wearing their masks properly.
“Kahit anong ordinansa laging merong hindi sumusunod. Ang question kung bumababa o dumadami,” Tiangco added.

The mayor said that he doesn’t have an idea why the residents are afraid of the RT-PCR tests. Some people were afraid to find out that they test positive for the respiratory illness.
