During the inspection, Negosyo Center Alabat Business Counselor Victoria T. Gonzales shared important reminders to the business owners/employees. These concerns include strategic display of food and non-food items in sari-sari stores; proper hygiene of workers/crew, cleanliness of water containers and delivery vehicles; physical condition and storage of LPG tanks. The required distancing for dining chairs/tables and necessary re-arrangement on the set up of drinking glass, spoon/fork and condiments were also inspected.

Meanwhile, Fire Officer 1 (FO1) Jethro G. Larita and Senior (FO1) Marser Francis E. Oliveros from the Bureau of Fire Protection both inspected the availability and validity of fire extinguishers. Likewise, they verified the installations and conditions of electrical wiring in each establishment visited. This is to ensure that fire hazards will be eliminated and fire-related incident will be avoided to save lives and properties.

Police Lieutenant (PLT) Isagani P. Gonzales and Police Executive Master Sergeant (PEMS) Eduardo R. Madrilejos from the Philippine National Police focused on the inspection/ required installation of CCTV camera. In the same way, they reminded business owners to be mindful on the availability of parking/ proper waiting area for customers to ensure public order and safety.

For the beach resorts, events and tourism accommodations, the joint inspection team emphasized on the compliance with the implemented minimum public health standard protocols.
