The municipal government of Angono has prohibited videoke sessions and other similar activities that tend to create loud and disturbing noises between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. or during the time that most online classes of students are ongoing from Monday to Friday.
In the Executive Order No. 2020-37 signed by acting Municipal Mayor Gerardo V. Calderon on October 5, the local issuance calls for “the strict implementation of Inter Agency Task Force (IATF) guidelines on minors and prohibiting the use of videoke or conducting any activity tending to create loud and disturbing noises from Monday to Friday between 9:00 in the morning until 3:00 in the afternoon.”
In his latest order as acting chief executive of the town, Calderon said the study sessions of students in Angono, which are now done at home through the distance learning setup, should not be disrupted and disturbed, at least from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
Municipal Administrator Alan Maniaol told Manila Bulletin that the latest issuance of the mayor is now being widely disseminated all over the town through the public address system of the local government.
The acting mayor also has a warning to students. Those below 21 years old, who should be at their respective home, more so during school hours, are likewise banned outside their residence from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., since they are expected to be attending their distance education classes, and not loitering around.
The municipal government said violators who are below 21 years old could be penalized with having to perform hours of community service or a jail term based on the existing local ordinances pertaining to IATF-issued guidelines during the quarantine period.
