The city government has begun implementing a temporary no-pass scheme in some parts of the city market to test the readiness of both the vendors and consumers to the possibility of regularizing the market schedule.
“Gradually, we started a temporary no-pass in some parts of the market. Let us observe its advantages and disadvantages,” Mayor Benjamin Magalong said.
He asked vendors to cooperate by reminding co-vendors and market goers to strictly adhere to all health protocols.
He also urged the designation of a health protocol officer by section or area or sector at the market who will regularly conduct information campaign and monitor compliance by the vendors and market patrons.
Special attention will be given to entry and exit points to compacted stall areas (highlighted with green).
“Let us all manage the situation for a safe and better public market. Again, let us live with the virus, earn with it while we protect and ensure our own health and family safety,” he said. – Aileen P. Refuerzo
