Rubiano instructed the local police as well as barangay officials, Pasay Public Order and Safety Unit and the Pasay Environment and Natural Resources Office to strictly enforce the ban.

According to the mayor, “persons that violate this order may be arrested and charged under (i) Sangguniang Ordinances; and/ or (ii) Se. 9 of Republic Act No. 1132, which penalizes non-cooperation of person or entities affected by a health event of public concern; and/or (iii) Article 151 of the Revised Penal Code (resistance and disobedience to a person in authority).
