AdChoiceTV News — Caloocan Mayor Oscar Malapitan on Sunday shut down resort in the city for operating despite quarantine protocols in the capital region disallowing it.
Photos this afternoon went viral on social media showing a number of Filipinos swimming at the Gubat sa Ciudad Resort in Barangay Bagumbong.
AdChoiceTV News, quoting Malapitan, reported that the resort’s business license will be revoked following the incident.
Per guidelines by the coronavirus task force, the said establishments are only allowed to resume work in areas under general community quarantine and Modified GCQ.
Metro Manila, as part of the ‘NCR Plus’ bubble, remains in Modified ECQ until May 14. It was returned to a stricter lockdown in end-March amid a record-high surge in additional infections.
On Sunday, the Philippines tallied 7,174 additional coronavirus cases. The overall count stood at 1,101,990.
Government agencies as well as the resort have also yet to issue a comment on the incident in Caloocan.
