Mayor Joy Belmonte ordered on July 17 the temporary closure of three more bars for violating health and safety protocols against COVID-19.

The establishments that were ordered closed by Belmonte were: Guilly’s Island Restaurant and Bar in Tomas Morato, the Karma Lounge in Tomas Morato and the Batcave Music Bar along Visayas Avenue.

The city’s enforcement unit, Task Force Disiplina and the Quezon City Police District discovered that these bars were seen operating even beyond public safety hours.

Their customers and employees were also caught violating health and safety protocols, as well as local and national quarantine guidelines.

“We cannot let our guard down especially with the revelation of health experts that community transmission of the Delta variant has been detected. Vigilance and the support of QCitizens in reporting erring establishments would prevent superspreader events and the widespread transmission of Covid-19,” Belmonte said.
