The annual Christmas party of the Negros Occidental provincial government employees at the SMX Convention Center in Bacolod City has been canceled as a precaution against COVID-19, Negros Occidental Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson said today, November 25.
But every provincial government department can have their respective celebrations provided they can follow health protocols, Lacson said.
Meanwhile, Mayor Rex Jalando-on has issued an executive order prohibiting La Carlota City government employees from holding Christmas parties inside and outside their offices to prevent the spread of COVID-19.*
