Virtual parties pushed


Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles has suggested that families and groups of friends hold virtual parties instead of risking their health to meet one another during Christmas amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Puwede naman mag-Christmas party via online o Zoom or gagamitin natin ‘yung technology o iba’t ibang online platforms para sa ating Christmas get-togethers,” Nograles said.

For other gatherings, Nograles said that the public should remember the different do’s and don’ts and other guidelines. However, he said it would really be better if such events will be held online.

“Alalahanin natin itong mga maximum capacities pagdating sa mass gatherings at kung maaari, kung puwede naman, kung puwedeng mag-online, online na lamang para safe po ang lahat,” he said.

The Palace official added that the government wants the public to celebrate Christmas without anybody getting sick.

“Gusto natin maging masaya rin kahit papano ‘yung Pasko kahit mayroon tayong kinakaharap na pandemya,” Nograles said. “Pero siyempre, mas magiging masaya ang Pasko kung walang mahahawa ng COVID,” he added.

Norgales said the government has yet to discuss if there should be rules on how to celebrate Christmas amid the ongoing threat of the pandemic. (Argyll Geducos)
