Malacañang warned “tiangges” of possible closure should they fail to implement health protocols against the coronavirus disease (Covid-19).

In a televised briefing Tuesday, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque reminded bazaar organizers to follow safety and health rules as the holiday shopping season is around the corner.

“Iri-remind ko lang po ang mga tiangge operators, pupuwede po kayong mapasara kapag hindi po ninyo in-observe ang social distancing,” said Roque.

He also urged tiangges to limit overcrowding and specify entry and exit points.

“Pupuwede namang pong limitahan iyong mga pumapasok sa mga tiangge, kinakailangan lang magkaroon ng special entry at the exit point. Kapag hindi po kayo nag-control ng crowd, baka mapasara kayo, lalo kayong mawalan ng negosyo,” according to him.

Roque likewise reminded local government units of their duty to ensure compliance with Covid-19 protocols and regulations.

“Iyan po ay responsibilidad ng lokal na pamahalaan pero responsibilidad na rin po natin iyan, because kinakailangan nga abutan natin iyong libreng bakuna,” he said.

“Alam nating kinakailangang mamili para sa Pasko pero ingatan naman natin ang ating mga sarili hindi lang para sa hanapbuhay kung hindi para tayo ay magkaroon ng maligayang Pasko dahil kapag kayo ay nagkasakit, nasaan ang Merry Christmas?”
