The video showed a large group of people who were partying without a facemask and face shield. It can also be seen on the video that the crowd failed to observe the social distancing policy.

It is yet to be known if the event was private or it was open to the public. The video clip also captured the establishment’s logo that allegedly hosted the gathering.

The EOC is now verifying the validity of the video as well as whether there is a valid business permit for the establishment.

Under the government’s quarantine policy, any form of mass gathering is prohibited in areas under General Community Quarantine.
