Quezon Town “Tagkawayan” Reimplement Liquor Ban COVID-19 Cases in Town Increased
Quezon Town has reimposed the liquor ban again in Tagkawayan due to the surging cases of COVID-19 in the area.
Tagkawayan Mayor Luis Oscar Eleazar issued Executive Order No. 57 announced the reimplementation of liquor ban in the town due to the increase cases of COVID-19 over the past few days due to traditional drinking session.
“The IATF (Interagency Task Force) of Tagkawayan, upon its evaluation in the past few days, found out that the common cause of new COVID-19 transmission is through the traditional consumption of liquor, e.g. (everyone sharing) one shot glass, and violating minimum health protocols resulting in the latest upsurge of new cases,” Eleazar said.
Eleazar said that IATF recommended the measure to ensure the safety of the public and to also curb the upsurge of CVOID-19 cases. The liquor ban will be implemented in both public and private places.
The precautionary measure started on Wednesday (May 12) and will end on May 31, 2021. The liquor ban in the town has been lifted last February 22, which leads to a total of 31 new COVID-19 cases since May 1.
