To jumpstart the business and economy, the Pasay local government has adjusted its curfew hours.
Under City Ordinance No. 6114 passed by the City Council on June 19 and signed by Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano, curfew in Pasay will be from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. which is two hours shorter than the previous
8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Mayor Emi said that such an adjustment in curfew hours would help businesses to recoup losses during the pandemic, noting that the health crisis has already affected a huge number of business establishments in the city, particularly those in the food and retail industries
“These industries help drive Pasay’s economy,” said Mayor Emi, whose city is known as the premier travel and entertainment hub of Metro Manila.
Mayor Emi stressed however that, “We still have to observe health guidelines even as we stretch the number of operating hours for our local businesses as well as the travel time window for our city’s working population and those on important errands.”
