San Juan City distributes aid to residents amid MECQ

The San Juan City government on Saturday has started to distribute another wave of relief assistance to the residents of its 21 barangays as the National Capital Region and the provinces of Laguna, Cavite, Bulacan, and Rizal are reverted to the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ).

Mayor Francis Zamora said the local government expects to complete the delivery of the relief assistance in San Juan's 21 barangays within four to five days.

The 13th wave of relief assistance contains food products including rice, canned goods, noodles, which will be distributed on a house-to-house and are consumable for two weeks while the MECQ is still in effect in the city.

"We make sure na sapat po yung inihahandog natin sa ating mamamayan para sa panahon ng MECQ (We make sure that we provide our constituents with enough assistance during the MECQ)," he said in a video interview shared in his Facebook page.

During the distribution of the food packs, Zamora urged the residents to maintain physical distancing.


"Maglabas lamang ng upuan sa tapat ng inyong tahanan at ipatong doon ang inyong quarantine pass. Hindi kailangang lumabas upang hindi na lumaganap pa ang Covid-19 (Just put a chair outside your house along with your quarantine pass. No need to go out so that the spread of Covid-19 will be contained)," he said.

He urged the residents to be part of the government's response against the coronavirus pandemic.

Zamora earlier signed two ordinances reinstating a strict implementation of city-wide curfew hours from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. and a total liquor ban in the city—a day after the MECQ was declared.

The city ordinance No. 53 sets curfew hours which will last until MECQ is lifted, while the city ordinance No. 54 prohibiting the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages and other liquor products in public places will be strictly imposed.

Zamora attributed these local laws as “new normal’ ordinances wherein residents are urged to wear face masks, practice proper hygiene, and maintain physical distancing at all times.

Residents who will fail to comply with the new normal ordinances will be fined PHP3,000 for the first offense and PHP5,000 fine or imprisonment for three months or both for the second offense.
