Acting Cebu City Mayor Mike Rama has issued Executive Order No. 137 imposing “Oplan Puyo”starting August 16 until August 31, 2021 for the implementation of hybrid Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine protocols.
Rama in a press statement said that the heart and soul of his EO is the Mandatory Stay at Home Order (MSAHO) as he urged his constituents go out only to report for essential work, and only to address essential needs.
The acting mayor also call on all parents and elders to adopt and impose upon their loved ones a Parental-Supervised Household Lockdown.
This responsibility, Rama said includes those who are recognized as leaders in their compound, village, sitio and barangay, as well as in the churches and among active community organizations.
Rama added that barangays officials play a greater role as the latter are empowered to undertake their own Barangay Territorial Management to stem any further spread of the virus and work with their neighbors and agree on specific points for an Inter-Barangay Boundary Management.
Through the police, the city government will coordinate with Talisay City and Mandaue City, and Balamban in the uplands, for an Inter-LGU Perimeter Manning Protocol to ensure that movement of people are authorized or allowed.
The mayor further said that they must do this to stem the further spread of COVID-19 with its Delta variant.
