wants classes to start 2021
BY CARLA P. GOMEZ

Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson yesterday said he is bracing for no community quarantine (CQ) in Negros Occidental by June 1 that will result in an influx of people entering the province through its air and sea ports.

General Community Quarantine (GCQ) in Negros Occidental ends on May 31.

He said they will try to get an extension to the suspension of air and sea travel to Negros Occidental beyond May 31 to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but he foresees that the national Inter Agency Task Force will declare “no CQ” for the province. moremoremore


Defer school opening, SP urges
BY CHRYSEE G. SAMILLANO

The Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod passed a resolution yesterday seeking the deferment of the opening of classes in Bacolod City to a later date than August.

Authored by Councilor Renecito Novero, the resolution asks the Department of Education, through Education Secretary Leonor Briones, to defer the opening of classes of schools under its jurisdiction to a later date until the national emergency and threats to life and health caused by COVID-19 has subsided and controlled.

The deferment of school opening and the avoidance of a traditional class face-to-face classroom scheme will not jeopardize the educational system but can be productive for students, educators, and the nation the resolution stated. moremoremore
