The Provincial Capitol Lagoon in Bacolod City is now open to people of all ages, almost two years after it was closed by the provincial government due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The opening of Capitol lagoon to the public was contained in an executive order issued and signed by Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson, according to Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz.
Diaz said that the 70 percent occupancy capacity of the lagoon will be observed.
It will be opened from 4 a.m. to 10 p.m., which is also in consonance with the curfew hours being observed all over the province from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. the next day.
There is no need for a vaccination card upon entering the Capitol lagoon, Diaz said.
The opening of Capitol lagoon for recreational purposes and physical exercises also coincided with the switch on ceremony of Christmas lights and other decorations, and the birthday celebration of Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson.*
