Antipolo City Mayor Andrea Bautista Ynares ordered the temporary closure of a community mall due to violation of minimum health protocols.
Victory Park and Shop which is located outside the compound of the National Shrine of the Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage was closed down few hours before its regular closing time on Feb. 4.
The office of Mayor Ynares has yet to reply to Manila Bulletin’s request to give details on the specific violation of the mall, or until when will the establishment be closed.
In a Facebook post, Ynares said the mall will only be allowed to resume operations once they have presented to the city government the steps it will take to comply with the minimum health protocols to the city government.
The city government has earlier required all establishments in the city to implement the Antipolo Bantay COVID-19 Contact Tracing QR Code, a contact tracing system that eliminates the process of manual registration for all those entering private establishments and government offices in the city.
The city’s QR code can also be used in Pasig City and Valenzuela City as the three cities have interconnected their contact tracing system.
As of February 5, the total number of COVID-19 cases in the city has reached 4,337, with 16 new cases reported.
