The Quezon City government announced on Friday, Nov. 26, the guidelines for social gatherings such as Christmas parties, concerts, and “simbang gabi” or night Masses that will be conducted in the city, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

Based on the guidelines signed by Mayor Joy Belmonte on Nov. 24, holding of events is allowed as long as contact tracing and health and safety protocols (social distancing, wearing of face masks) are maintained.

Families are encouraged to limit Christmas parties and other celebrations to immediate household members, but large reunions are discouraged.

Party organizers should also list the names and contact details of the attendees and enforce crowd control measures such as assigning marshals, floor markers, and proper spacing of chairs and tables.

The city government encourages churches and other religious institutions to hold Masses from 6 a.m. to 6. p.m.

The Masses can also be broadcasted/streamed live on social media platforms to allow residents to attend without physically going to the churches.

Professional singers and artists who are going to perform in concerts, clubs and theaters are allowed not to wear face coverings during their performances.

However, karaoke customers are required to wear face masks while singing, the local government said.

Microphones and other equipment should be disinfected.

All the establishments should have Safety Seals issued by the city government or other authorized agencies so that they can accommodate 80 percent of their maximum indoor capacity for fully vaccinated individuals and 100 percent for outdoors, regardless of visitors’ vaccination status.

The allowed capacity for buildings and venues without the seals are reduced by 10 percent (70 percent for indoors, 90 percent for outdoors).

Meanwhile, church groups and other organizations may engage in door-to-door caroling activities as long as they have obtained a clearance from the concerned barangays.
