Malls and other commercial centers are now allowed to operate as Cebu City has started to ease a bit its restrictions under the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) status.

The operations of malls and other shopping centers are limited to non-leisure aspects of their businesses.

Mayor Edgardo Labella issued Executive Order (EO) 84 on Thursday, July 16, 2020, setting the guidelines that must be followed during Cebu City’s MECQ period, and his order took effect on the same day.

The city’s MECQ status started on July 16 and it will end on July 31, 2020.

Aside from malls, allowed to operate under EO 84 are restaurants, but no dine-in is allowed. Also allowed are shops that sell hardware, clothes and accessories, books, school and office supplies and infant care needs.

Stores involved in trading information, technology and communications equipment, flower, jewelry, perfume, novelty item and toys are permitted to operate.

However, these businesses must only operate at 50 percent of their workforce.
