CASES COMING | Cases eyed vs bar for violating MPHS, operating sans permit

A CITY government official said Monday cases will be filed against a bar for operating without a business permit and for violating protocols against COVID-19 particularly its failure to implement the minimum public health standards (MPHS).

In a story of the City Information Office, Dr. Michelle Schlosser, COVID-19 Task Force spokesperson, said the police also issued citation tickets to those violating the standards during the visit to Supladoz Ilustre Restobar on Saturday.

She added the Business Bureau has also issued a cease and desist order against the establishment.

This developed as Schlosser said the city government is looking at maintaining the Alert 2 Level especially if more violations against the protocols are recorded. 

“Hopefully, this serves as a reminder nga naa pa ta’y kalaban nga COVID-19 noh. Naa gihapon ang virus therefore we always have to be vigilant. Dapat magpadayon atong pagka-cooperative, pagkadisiplinado by always following the MPHS and by being responsible to protect ourselves through having our vaccine or our booster doses. It’s always a combination (Hopefully, this serves as a reminder that our enemy, COVID-19, is still very much around. We should continue to be cooperative and disciplined by always following the MPHS and by being responsible to protect ourselves through having our vaccine or our booster doses),” Schlosser said.

The TIMES tried to contact the bar for its side of the story, but failed.

Initially, Schlosser said, investigators found out that the bar had no business permit and that its management did not implement the health standards.

“They also did not use the DQR scanning. Wala mi’y record na naa’y nisulod sa ilang establishment. Wala siguro ni sila naga scan in and scan out sa ilahang (Safe) DQR (Davao Quick Response code) for their clientele. Upon initial investigation, mao na’ng mga violations na commit nila,” Dr. Schlosser said.

She added the City Legal Office has joined in the investigation as the Business Bureau and the enforcement team were set to meet with business establishments yesterday.

 “We will remind them of the minimum public health standards. I-remind namo sa ilaha nga they will not receive a safety seal without following those needed for them to achieve it. At the same time, daghan na kaayo ta na-deputize dili lang atong mga police personnel, we are also deputizing people from (the) response cluster so that we can all help in making sure na implemented ang pag follow sa MPHS,” she added.

The controversy came about after the city government lifted the implementation of drinking of liquor in public places like restaurants and bars.
