Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Oscar Moreno issued on March 26 an Executive Order No. 034 relating to guidelines on the Holy Week’s observance beginning March 27 until April 4, 2021.
“All places in the City of Cagayan de Oro where throngs of the faithful usually and are expected to congregate shall be closed from March 27 to April 4, 2021, and their point of ingress sealed off from the public,” it read.
“These places, which are commonly referred to as PANAAD destinations, shall include, but not limited to the following: Malasag Area, Guadalupe Shrine, Camarahan Ridge, and other places where people are expected to congregate during the Holy Week.”
Religious services allowed under the IATF Omnibus Guidelines and related issuance shall be limited to masses, evangelical gatherings, and similar church and religious services, excluding the holding of religious processions and walking the Stations of the Cross in external public venues.
Meanwhile, leisure areas such as the beach, resorts, and other amusement places will be closed during Holy Week. “Taking a dip in rivers and other freshwater channels is likewise prohibited,” it added.
Lastly, minimum public health standards, which include physical distancing, hand hygiene, cough etiquette, and wearing of facemasks and face shields among others, will be strictly implemented across all settings.
