USANA SAYS INSTEAD OF ARRESTS, COPS WILL GIVE FACE SHIELDS, MASKS TO VIOLATORS
The spokesman of the Philippine National Police said Wednesday, Police officers will not necessarily arrest people who will leave their homes without face shields and face masks, as they may instead supply these to the violators instead.
The PNP received donations of face masks and shields and the cops will use these as they enforce guidelines issued by the Inter-Agency Task Force against COVID-19,
PBGen. Ildebrandi Usana said.
In an interview he said,
“During the press conference, sabi po ng aming Chief PNP Gen. Debold Sinas, hindi naman kailangan na right away magkakaroon po ng sanctions. Posible po na kung may dala-dala na rin po ang ating kapulisan na mga face shield o masks para po sa mga mamamayan, puwede pong ipamahagi itong mga itong personal protective equipment para sa kanilang kapakanan.”
He said, “What we understand is it is the local government unit that will be issuing appropriate sanctions with regard to the compliance to the guidelines of the IATF.”
Sinas was also quoted in news reports as saying parties are prohibited during the holiday season. Usana said this includes family reunions at home.
