Mahuhuli kayo! Joy Belmonte warns biz establishments after resto bar’s shutdown over party
Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte has warned owners of restobars, night clubs and karaoke bars against holding parties after the city government shut down Guilly’s Island night club in Tomas Morato.
Around 100 individuls were also arrested at the night club for partying.
“Binabalaan natin ang mga may-ari ng bar at nightclub na itigil na ang kanilang ilegal na ginagawa dahil mahuhuli at mahuhuli namin kayo,” said Belmonte.
Under the General Community Quarantine guidelines issued by Belmonte in August, operation of restobars, night clubs, and other leisure and entertainment centers are prohibited. Restobars can only operate as restaurants.
According to Barangay South Triangle chairman Pedro Battung Jr., authorities arrested over 100 community quarantine violators, including bar personnel, who were caught partying at Guilly’s Island night club for violating quarantine guidelines and health protocols set by the city.
While Belmonte understood the need to jumpstart the city’s economy, she said the health and safety of its citizens must not be compromised.
“Nais man nating simulan ang muling pagbuhay ng ekonomiya ng lungsod, hindi natin maaaring isantabi ang mga isyung pangkalusugan na maaaring makaapekto sa karamihan,” she said.
