Police requires CL residents to wear face masks when leaving homes

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga — The police now requires all Central Luzon residents to wear face masks or other protective gears when leaving their homes to buy essential commodities.

Police Regional Director PBGen. Rhodel Sermonia said this directive is being carried out pursuant to the pronouncement of President Rodrigo Duterte and Resolution No. 18 of the Inter-Agency Task Force on the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases.

Yesterday, a total of 1,001 persons regionwide were warned by authorities for non-wearing of face masks.

“We enjoin the public to adhere to the guidelines on the wearing of face masks and protective gears as well as the observance of Social Distancing. Stiff penalties of one to six months of imprisonment or a fine of PhP20,000 to 50,000, or both will be imposed to violators,” Sermonia added.

 “We are doing the best we can together with all the frontliners to contain the continuous spread of coronavirus disease, time and again, we call out to the public to also do their share by following authorities and staying at their homes,” the official furthered.
