At least 15 bars and food stalls that sell intoxicating drinks were shutdown by the Emergency Operations Center of Bacolod.
The EOC inspection team together with police and business and permits representatives conducted a surprise check of various food stalls that are operating in the city and found out that these establishments violated the quarantine guidelines.
Based on the latest executive order issued by the city the sale and consumption of alcholic beverages are only allowed in private residents.
Aside from food stalls, a number of karaoke bars were also closed for violating the quarantine protocol.
In a series of photos posted by Aksyon Radyo Bacolod, tens of people were caught by inspectors in groups having a drinking session.
Yesterday, November 12, a waterpark and resort operating within the city was also ordered to close, following the inspection team’s discovery that a birthday party was going on when they arrived to check at the property.
