Rex Gatchalian summons convenience stores for warning on contact tracing


Convenience store owners are not exempted from Valenzuela’s strict protocols for COVID-19.

Mayor Rex Gatchalian rounded up the owner of convenience stores in the city as he intensified anti-coronavirus measures, including the use of the local contact tracing app for each visitor.

“Called all the convenience store operators of the city for a meeting. Warned that random plain clothes audits being done all throughout the city, if we catch them not doing Valtrace and minimum health standards we will not hesitate to shut them down like what we did to 2 stores,” the politiko said.
