In his Executive Order 21-47, Lacson said he wants to prevent an influx of people and mass gatherings during All Saints and Souls Days because of the rising number of COVID-19 cases in Negros Occidental.

“All component cities and municipalities under the province of Negros Occidental are directed to comply and implement the executive order through their respective Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office, Traffic Management Authority, Philippine National Police and force multipliers,” Lacson said.
