Albay town, city restrict recreational activities this weekend

LEGAZPI CITY –– City officials, and those of Sto. Domingo town, reminded the public that recreational activities this Holy Week would still be restricted amid the quarantine being enforced due to coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

City Mayor Noel Rosal has instructed all the village chiefs to remind the residents that swimming in coastal areas, pools, rivers, and resorts, especially on Easter Sunday, would be prohibited to prevent the spread of COVID-19.


He reiterated that these and other similar establishments would not be allowed to operate to avoid mass gatherings and unnecessary movement of people.

Sto. Domingo Mayor Joseling Aguas ordered the same prohibitions. Violators would be sanctioned, he said in an advisory.
