The delivery services offered by Navotas City’s “NavoHatid” program will be free of charge from July 20 to 29, Mayor Toby Tiangco announced via Facebook. The delivery program is used by residents for buying and selling within and outside the city.
Mayor Tiangco also mentioned that permits issued by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) for online sellers will not be recognized as valid documents for residents who want to go out of their residences. This comes after the local government received applications from individuals who are not legitimate online sellers. The city is under lockdown from July 16 to 29 .
Agora Market reopens after two-week closure
San Juan City’s Agora Market reopened last July 16 after a two-week temporary closure due to the number of COVID-19 positive workers in the area. Only vendors and workers who tested negative and were issued with health clearances were allowed to reopen their businesses .
Mayor Francis Zamora advises customers to look for the health clearances or blue ID worn by vendors for their safety. Both vendors and customers are also required to wear face masks and follow proper physical distancing. Zamora also encourages citizens to report offenders to the San Juan Police and Task Force Disiplina. Violators will be fined PhP3,000 for first offense and PhP5,000 or three months imprisonment for second and subsequent offenses.
The market was closed from July 1 to 15 after a male fish vendor tested positive for COVID-19 during a random testing. During the two-week closure, the market was disinfected and 647 market vendors and workers were subjected to swab testing. Twenty-six of the tested individuals tested positive.
