WITH Baguio City now on Alert Level 2, the local government has loosened some restrictions on its local populace, like shortening its existing liquor ban and removing curfew entirely.

Executive Order (EO) 160-2021, taking effect since Wednesday, shortens the liquor ban from 12:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M to 2:00 A.M. to 10:00 A.M. only.

The city’s general curfew, shortened in October to midnight to 4:00 A.M. instead of the previous 10:00 P.M. stretching up to 4:00 A.M, has been removed entirely in line with the city’s alert level reduced to Alert level 2.

However, the removal of the curfew may be revoked if the COVID-19 situation worsens, according to the EO.

EO 160 follows the new alert level classifications released by the Inter-Agency Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID), which has reduced the risk category of the city from Level 3 to Level 2.

The EO also stipulates that workplaces, both public and private, may now operate at 80 percent capacity.

Indoor dine-in establishments, gyms, fitness centers, salons, spas, and other personal care facilities, museums, cultural centers, libraries and archives, other tourist and leisure attractions, and E-bingo and other gaming establishments are allowed to operate at 50 percent venue capacity, while outdoor venues can instead operate at 70 percent capacity.

“All establishments may add 10 percent to permitted capacity if with a Safety Seal certificate,” the EO states.
