Negros Occidental Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson said yesterday that he is in favor of shorter curfew hours to help businesses to recover, but is leaving the decision up to the mayors.
The governor said he in favor of the decision of the Metro Manila mayors to impose shorter curfew hours from midnight to 4 a.m. as part of the government’s move to ease restrictions amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
This will allow businesses, especially those engaged in the food industry, to stay open for longer hours, as long as COVID-19 minimum health standards are followed, he said.*
