On Social media posts circulating about the closing of establishments that don’t adhere to health standards
Yes, the city has temporarily closed several establishments that do not adhere to minimum health standards of the Safe City Task Force.
While it is not in the city government’s best interest for businesses to be closed down, it must be clear to everyone that we will always value the lives of the residents of Taguig more than the revenue raised from the operations of non-compliant establishments.
Our primary duty as the local government is to protect and keep safe the people of Taguig.
COVID-19, as we all know, has brought about a state of public health emergency. Our policy of temporarily shutting down establishments that do not adhere to the safety and health protocols has been disseminated from the start as these protocols are necessary in order to save lives and contain the spread of the virus.
For those who are reckless and irresponsible, we want to be very clear — you must work within the guidelines set by public health experts to ensure the safety of the general public or face the full force of the law. Complaining about it on social media but not doing the actual work to keep your establishment safe, will not work.
As for those who are fully compliant, we embrace you and thank you for working with us to keep the city safe and open for business.
Let us always be reminded that these are not ordinary times. And we all need to do our part in order to save lives.
