Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson said that the Provincial Capitol lagoon and park is closed to minors starting today.
He said the move will send a message to parents that minors must again stay home due to the fresh spike in Covid cases, although he admits it is a “very sad decision since kids enjoy at the lagoon”.
The governor said their safety and the vigilance against Covid are of utmost importance.
Lacson issued Executive Order No. 21-57 implementing new guidelines under Alert Level 2 for the park that opens 5 a.m. until 10 p.m. everyday.
Those 13 years old above with vaccination card will be allowed to enter.*
