The local government of Pasig City has been rolling out various initiatives in its attempt to strictly enforce social distancing within its community throughout this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

First was the ‘mobile palengke that seeked to reduce the number of people gathering at public marketplaces and aid those who have no access to viable transport. This was then followed up with a new barangay coding scheme for the Pasig Mega Market that began implementation just a few days ago. This marketplace coding eventually turned out successful, so the LGU has now decided to impose the same scheme on all establishments across the entire city starting April 30.

Pasig City mayor Vico Sotto announced via his Facebook page that upon the new directive’s implementation, only 10 barangays per day will be allowed to go out of their respective locales. Each barangay will then be allowed to go out twice per week. Sotto has clarified that strict implementation will be observed effective May 4.
