As Metro Manila mayors agreed to ban Christmas parties this year, Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles on Wednesday advised companies to throw a virtual holiday party instead.

Due to the continued threat of the pandemic, chief executives in the National Capital Region recommended to the government’s coronavirus (Covid-19) task force to extend the general community quarantine (GCQ) period in the region until December.

Under GCQ, any form of mass gatherings like movie screenings, concerts, sporting events, and non-essential work gatherings are still prohibited.

“Pwede naman mag Christmas party via online o Zoom or gagamitin natin yung technology o ibat ibang online platforms para sa ating Christmas get-togethers,” Nograles said in an interview aired over PTV.

This setup, according to him, would ensure the health and safety of employees against Covid-19 that has infected more than 360,000 Filipinos as of October 20.

“Kahit mayroon tayong kinakaharap na pandemya, mas magiging masaya ang pasko kung walang mahahawa ng COVID. Yun lang naman po ang bottomline natin dito. So dapat umiiral lagi ung health at safety protocols para sa lahat, para hindi magkahawaan,” he concluded.
