VALOR 19 assured that essential work-related meetings and religious activities “may continue so long as strict social distancing and religious activities may continue so long as strict social distancing, defined as the strict maintenance of a distance of at lease one meter radius between and among those attending, is maintained during the entirety of the event.”
“The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) shall ensure that private establishments in operation strictly maintain social distancing in their businesses,” it added.
It was reported last April 1, the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) arrested 21 persons after residents of Sitio San Roque went to EDSA and held a rally demanding help from government.

“We teamed up with the Office of the VP and volunteer lawyers and law students to mobilize this resource,” read his social media posts on Thursday (April 9).

“Alam nating maraming katanungan sa batas ang mga kababayan natin ngayon,” Diokno pointed out.
