Baguio City will continue to require its residents to wear masks, Mayor Benjamin Magalong said.
Under Alert Level 1, the Politiko said that the lgu will adhere to the directives of the Inter-Agency Task Force and will still implement the local ordinance against COVID-19.
“We do not intend to make any pronouncements or executive orders that will go against the pronouncements or policies of the IATF. We should always be aligned or we will be sending the wrong signal or cause confusion among our constituents,” the Politiko said.
“It is only when there is a national announcement that the Covid-19 pandemic is over, that it would be safe for us to no longer need to wear face masks. The important thing is that we are following IATF rules and regulations and not violating these or being hard-headed on the matter.”
