Pasay City mobilized teams to check if restaurants and fast-food establishments are following health protocols before doing business.

The inspection teams were from the Business Permit and Licensing Office (BPLO), City Health Office (CHO) and the office of the City Engineer with the assistance of the city police who will ensure that proper minimum health standards are being complied with.

Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano said the inspection teams were formed after the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases allowed restaurants under the general community quarantine (GCQ) to gradually open at 30 percent seating capacity starting June 15.

“We have to make sure that business establishments follow minimum standards to keep their customers safe,” Rubiano said.

The mayor said the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) already released guidelines on minimum health protocols for dine-in restaurants and fast food establishments and it will be up to the local government units to check for compliance.

Rubiano said among the requirements that need to be followed are the posting of information materials at the entrance and other prominent or conspicuous areas of the establishment.

She also reminded customers on the no-mask-no-entry policy and the observance of physical distancing.

The mayor added that there should also be a regular sanitation schedule like a 10-minute sanitation interval for outgoing and incoming dine-in customers. There should likewise be alternative methods of payment if applicable.

Rubiano said at the entrance, a floor mat or foot bath with disinfectant must be provided while a queuing area should comply with physical distancing rules. A thermal scanner should also be available for temperature reading and alcohol for hand sanitation.
