Fifty establishments were shuttered for continuing to operate amid the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).
The city government issued a cease and desist order to the businesses on the recommendation by the joint inspection team tasked to ensure compliance with the ECQ.
The inspection team is composed of personnel from the Business Bureau, City Legal Office, City Health Office, Davao City Investment and Promotion Center, Museo Dabawenyo, and the Integrated Gender and Development Division.
IGDD head Lorna Mandin, who also leads the inspection team, said that these establishments are located in Mintal, Tugbok, Calinan, Buhangin, Cabantian, Sandawa, Matina, Toril, Dumoy, Catalunan Pequeno, Bankerohan, A. Pichon Street, and Matina Aplaya.
Among these non-essential establishments include lumber shops, hardware, laundry shops, cellphone accessory stores, gun stores, flower shops, beauty salons, stores selling garments and shoes, and dine-in eateries.
Business establishments were randomly inspected by the team following reports that some of them have continued operating despite the ECQ.
Meanwhile, the Business Bureau said around five establishments are also subject for further investigation by the Davao City Police Office (DCPO) for possible filing of cases as they were found to have violated some protocols under the ECQ.
The bureau warned establishments that continue to operate despite the closure order that they will file the necessary case and they will ban them from operating.
