|Liquor shelves remain uncovered inspite the liquor ban In the partial ban, consumption of alcohol may still be done but only in one's residence and/or private quarters.|
A province-wide partial liquor ban throughout the effectivity of the island province’s community quarantine is enforced in Bohol with Executive Order No. 17 signed on March 24, 2020 by
Bohol Governor Arthur C. Yap.
According to the order, the sale, furnishing, offering, buying, serving and intake of alcoholic drinks and beverages are prohibited in the province unless consumption is done in the respective homes and private quarters of Boholanos. Meeting up to partake of the spirits in someone else's place is also banned, as with going out intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol.
Entering its second week of community quarantine, this is part of Bohol's COVID-19 additional preventive measures to further promote social distancing and discourage people from gathering, as well as encourage healthy alcohol-free living and avoid social disturbances associated with drinking.
Last weekend, the Bohol Governor ordered a 24-hour curfew, with exemptions for medical emergencies and the like, to all its residents aged sixty-five (65) and above and those below the age of eighteen (18), and required the mandatory use of face mask at all times in all public places in Bohol beginning March 26, 2020 at 5 o’clock in the morning.
As of today, Bohol reports zero active COVID-19 cases.
