VILLASIS, Pangasinan, Philippines — The municipal government of Villasis in this province has prohibited unvaccinated people and minors from entering enclosed establishments.

Mayor Nonato Abrenica issued an executive order on Wednesday promulgating the protocols for unvaccinated persons and minors after the town was placed under Alert Level 2.

The order prohibits establishments such as groceries, restaurants, beauty salons, banks, appliance centers, department stores and hardware stores from allowing entry to unvaccinated individual and minors.

It said that Alert Level 2 allows minors accompanied by their parents or guardians to go out only for sun and exercise as well as for medical purposes.

Basketball and other contact sports are still prohibited in Villasis, except those with written permits from the mayor.


Meanwhile, the Department of the Interior and Local Government has denied a request of Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia to prevent the provincial government of Negros Occidental from implementing the S-PASS or swift, safe, smart passage requirement on visitors arriving through the Bacolod-Silay Airport.

Leonardia made the request on Nov. 22 after the provincial government stood firm in its decision to impose the S-PASS.

The request stemmed from the provincial government’s rejection of Leonardia’s order, which lifted the S-PASS requirement following the downgrading of Bacolod from Alert Level 4 to Alert Level 2 effective Nov. 15 to 30.

Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson called for respect for the decision of the provincial government requiring inbound travelers including Bacolod residents passing through the airport in Silay City to secure S-PASS.

Lacson said the provincial government respects Bacolod’s guidelines for visitors enter ing through Bredco and Banago ports.
