CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (PIA)–The Cagayan de Oro Task Force against COVID-19 over the weekend appealed to business establishments that were recently allowed to re-open in the city to strictly follow the local omnibus guidelines under the modified general community quarantine in an effort to protect the public from the novel coronavirus disease.
The business establishments covered by the guidelines include spas and massage clinics, gyms, fitness centers, internet cafes, “pisonets,” barbershops, salons, nail service establishments, “ukay-ukay” stores, billiard halls, tutorial or review centers, bars, videoke joints, and beach resorts, among others.
These establishments have been given separate guidelines due to the different natures of their businesses but there are common provisions like the mandatory use of face masks, physical distancing, hand disinfection or sanitizing areas, body temperature inspections, foot baths, the required barangay exit passes, health clearances for their workers.
Officials said the establishments also need to display their business permits, provide a garbage disposal system approved by the City Local Environment and Natural Resources (CLENRO), logbooks to record the names and contact information of clients.
Officials also reminded the establishments about the need for proper lighting and ventilation, CCTVs, even as they were encouraged to use trays for cash payments and receipts.
The task force said erring establishments face the prospects of being sanctioned or even closed down. (CIO/PIA10)
