To avoid a spike in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) with the impending opening of the economy and enforcement of relaxed quarantine guidelines, the Quezon City government plans to elicit the cooperation of its citizens in reporting establishments that violate minimum health standards.

Mayor Belmonte said stricter monitoring is a must with more people expected to go out on the streets.

“Dahil mas marami nang tao ang lalabas sa kanilang mga tahanan, kailangang mas paigtingin pa natin ang pagbabantay, lalo na sa mga establisimyento na pupuntahan ng karamihan. The key to prevent a spike in cases is to ramp up our surveillance and enforcement efforts, and this is where we need the help of QCitizens because our frontliners can only do so much,” said Belmonte.

“Kaya kailangan natin ang tulong ng lahat upang maiparating sa amin ang mga hindi sumusunod sa mga itinakdang patakaran upang mapigil ang pagkalat ng COVID-19,” she said.

Belmonte said the city government will open a link on its official website where residents can report violators.

“Mauuwi lang sa wala ang ating mga nakamit na tagumpay laban sa COVID-19 kung muli na namang tataas ang kaso sa ating lungsod,” said Belmonte.

The city recently reported that 90 percent of its confirmed COVID-19 cases have recovered while its reproduction number is now at 0.67, which is closer to the World health Organization ideal number of 0.50.

Aside from planning to open the economy, the city is also finalizing a more relaxed community quarantine guidelines, in accordance with the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) directives and regulations.

The city plans to shorten public safety hours to 12 midnight to 4 a.m. with the exemption of essential activities that operate on a 24-hour basis, such as market operations, food take-out and delivery, pharmacies, hospitals, convenience stores, and delivery of goods.

Persons aged 18 to 65 will be allowed to leave home, provided they have company ID, government-issued ID, school ID, Authorized Person Outside Residence (APOR) ID, barangay ID or certification. They will not be required to present quarantine passes, but it will be honored as an alternative to the previously mentioned IDs.

The shortened curfew period and the allowing of 18 to 65 years old to go out have been approved earlier by Metro Manila mayors.

Religious gatherings will be allowed up to 30 percent of the church’s capacity while work-related gatherings and other unavoidable gatherings must not exceed 50 percent of a venue’s capacity or 100 persons, whichever is lower. Attendees must always observe minimum health standards, such as use of face masks, disinfecting of hands and physical distancing.

Restaurants, hotels and other tourism establishments may operate until 12 midnight, but orders of alcoholic beverages will only be allowed until 10 p.m. Duly licensed liquor dealers will be allowed to sell on retail or delivery from 8 am to 10 pm.
