Bacolod sets restrictions
on entry of out-of-towners

The city government of Bacolod has set minimal restrictions for out-of-towners who want to enter the city.

Mayor Evelio Leonardia issued Executive Order 58-B on September 4 for clearer regulations on the transport of essential goods, and essential or non-leisure travel of out-of-towners into Bacolod City during the general community quarantine period until Sept. 30.

In the order, the mayor said that transport of essential goods, prime commodities, any type of cargo in bulk, and construction materials for public or private building projects should not be hampered.

DOLE eyes e-payment of salaries

The Department of Labor and Employment in Western Visayas is urging private companies to utilize digital transactions to pay the wages and benefits of their employees, Cyril Ticao, DOLE 6 director, said yesterday.

He said this is a safer alternative to the physical exchange of bills and coins since it reduces physical contact and minimizes transmission or the spread of viruses.

Transaction accounts also reduce costs and risks of physical cash disbursements as well as lessen the threat amid the Covid-19 pandemic, he added.
