Religious gatherings OK at 30% capacity


The city of Bacolod has allowed churches to expand religious gatherings at 30% seating capacity. This after Mayor Evelio Leonardia has signed Executive Order No. 70.

The recent addendum was based on the recent resolution of the National Inter-Agency Task Force, which authorizes physical assembly in churches at 30%.

Last month, Bacolod churches are only permitted up to 10% of its seating capacity after the IATF has placed the entire city under General Community Quarantine (GCQ).

As for the curfew hours, the EO stated that curfew will remain from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.

Meanwhile, selling of liquor will be allowed from noon to 6 p.m., but you may only consume it in private residences.

Bacolod will remain under GCQ for the remainder of November following the IATF’s dismissal of the mayor’s appeal to downgrade the city’s quarantine level to modified GCQ.
