TACLOBAN CITY – The local government unit (LGU) of Tacloban City has banned Christmas parties and carolling in line with the General Community Quarantine (GCQ) restrictions by the national government.

Through Executive Order No. 2020-11-44 or  “An Executive Order Extending the Implementation of Community Quarantine Measures in Tacloban," signed by Tacloban City Mayor Alfred Romualdez, said Christmas activities are strictly prohibited.

Romualdez said in an interview on Thursday, “All forms of face-to-face Christmas carolling, whether done individually or by group, shall be prohibited for the duration of the Executive Order.” 

All types of social gatherings or parties by companies, organizations, establishments and similar institutions are not allowed within the City for the whole duration of December to prevent the spread of COVID-19 disease.

Other gatherings are also strictly prohibited such as concerts, sporting events and other entertainment activities, community assemblies, and non-essential work gatherings.

Romualdez added that authorized humanitarian activities and critical government services will be allowed but prescribed minimum health standards should be followed.
