Toby Tiangco explains why delivery, take out services in Navotas are exempted from curfew
The city government of Navotas has allowed the delivery, take-out and drive-thru services of restaurants, eateries, coffee and tea shops, bakeries, and other similar establishments beyond the 8PM–5AM citywide curfew.
Executive Order No. 044 allowed food establishments to operate beyond curfew hours to provide delivery services in and out of the city, and take-out and drive-thru services only for authorized persons outside of residence (APOR).
The EO also covered food establishments located inside grocery stores and supermarkets that offer delivery services.
However, dine-in beyond curfew is strictly prohibited. Non-APORs are also banned from buying food via take-out and drive-thru from 8PM-5AM.
“There is still demand for food services during curfew hours from those who work at night. These include doctors, nurses, other health personnel, ambulance drivers, call center agents, security guards and workers at Navotas Fish Port Complex,” Mayor Toby Tiangco said.
Food establishments need to strictly implement social distancing and other safety protocols, as well as conduct thorough and regular sanitation and disinfection during operation.
