Cebu province to form own ‘Task Force New Normal’

Live the new normal, don’t die with it.

Your eyebrows might have raised with the opening sentence, but let me tell you. With the arising cases of CoVID-19, we have to consider everything our new normal.

Going to the market to do your groceries, wearing of face masks, practicing proper hygiene, and avoiding the crowd. These could all be new to you, but this is definitely a good practice.

Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia even said that we have to accept that there is now a new normal and we should be open to creating the new normal hence the formation of the CEBU NEW NORMAL TASK FORCE.

Cebu is still placed under Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) until May 15, or until further notice.

“Now, we are crafting a new Executive Order that will create Task Force New Normal. Sa daghang higayon nagbalik-balik nako og ingon, do not expect nga magpadayon ang atong naandan. The old normal is gone. Prepare yourselves,”

– Cebu Gov. Gwen Garcia

“Let us define the new normal aron maka-adapt kita sa bag-o nga kalibutan, bag-o nga probinsiya, bag-o nga kinabuhi,”

The task force will be headed by Gov. Garcia and will have representatives from the business sector, airline industry, travel and tourism, bus and public transport sectors, National Government agencies like the Department of Agriculture, Department of Health, Department of the Interior and Local Government, Department of Labor, and the Department of Trade and Industry, among others.

However, Gov. Garcia is most likely to declare a liquor ban if people will continue to violate the local ordinance and Executive Order 5-G on social distancing and ban on social gatherings and assemblies.

“Ayaw pud ko ninyo abusohi,” she said.
