MPD To Enforce Health Protocols At Manila Bay ‘White Beach’


How do you feel about this story?


Manila police have been instructed to ensure that health safety protocols are observed by visitors at the newly reopened dolomite sand beach in Manila Bay.

Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Gen. Guillermo Eleazar also appealed to visitors who plan to frolic on the shores during the last day of “viewing” Tuesday to adhere to the protocols by wearing face masks and face shields and maintaining physical distancing.

“I have tasked the Manila Police District to deploy additional policemen in the area to ensure that persons who visit the beach observe minimum public health safety standards and follow quarantine protocols,” Eleazar said.

Since its opening last July 18, the public is allowed to roam and walk along the beach for only five minutes to avoid overcrowding.

Tourists cannot swim on the bay yet as its waters still have not reached a safe and acceptable level. It is open to the public only until July 20.

Marshalls are stationed in the area to implement the safety guidelines during the three-day public viewing. (PNA)
