LPPC Iligan Health Protocols Monitoring

(Wednesday, 3rd of February 2021)


ILIGAN CITY – DTI-ILIGAN, in partnership with the PNP and Local Prices Coordinating Council (LPCC), carried out the LPCC Iligan Health Protocols Monitoring, an inspection on different establishments in Iligan City, making sure that these establishments are operating following health and safety protocols on Feb 3.

As the city is placed under General Community Quarantine (GCQ), DTI and our LGU are making efforts to balance economic stability and community safety. It is not an easy task and the government is asking for everyone’s support. The government doesn’t wish for the businesses to cease operations again and at the same time, the government doesn’t want for the virus to spread further. Our LGU is imploring that all should compromise, make things work, and meet halfway. Businesses are allowed to operate but should strictly follow guidelines and protocols. Accommodating only 50% of the maximum capacity of the establishments (making sure “x” marks are placed on seats to ensure visibility of where customers are only allowed to sit), logbooks to record the customer’s usage of the facility for contact tracing, temperature check for every customer or guest to enter the establishment, sanitizers readily available on the entrances and other key areas in the establishment, hand washing areas should also be available if possible, wearing of face shields and face masks, and observance of social distancing, are but a few of the most important guidelines to follow while inside the establishments. These may be a long list of protocols to be followed but are essential to ensure public safety and avoiding viral transmission while enjoying different services offered by these stores.
