Dads hit 'frisking protocols' in malls

By RUEL V. PELONE

CAGAYAN de Oro City--Two councilors have finally noticed the "frisking protocols" being practiced by some security guards assigned at the entrance of malls in the city.

“I’ll bring this matter to the law enforcement cluster of the IATF so
that the rules of engagement should be given the appropriate flexibility," said Councilor Romeo V. Calizo during the City Council  regular session Monday in response to the observations of Councilor Lordan G. Suan.

Suan said because social distancing cannot be maintained during the routinary security check up, both  customers and guards are at risk of possible virus contamination.

"Ang paghikap o’ pagrekisa posibleng magtakod sa virus kay wala may physical distancing ug dili segurado nga ang mahawiran sa gwardiya nga bahin sa gisuot sa kustomer walay nakatapot nga virus," said Suan in a press statement.

He added: "Atong hinumduman nga ang pagtakod sa Covid-19 mahimong droplets lang busa angayan nga likayan kini nga pamaagi sa pagsusi sa mga gamit sa mosulod sa mga establisamento."

He said: “Obviously enforcement is at a dilemma in this particular scenario because we are going to ask the question which should be given priority, security gikan sa mga kawatan, holdapers or security against the pandemic?"

Vice Mayor Raineir Joaquin V. Uy referred the matter to the committee
on public order and safety chaired by Councilor Calizo for appropriate
action. (With SP/JAOclarit and SP/APDelgra)
