According to the signed Ordinance No. 6107, residents are now allowed to sell or purchase any liquor products between 8 AM to 6 PM every day provided that consumption is only done inside the house and that physical distancing is strictly observed. “In no case shall drinking beyond the premises of the house, including backyards, and in any public place shall be allowed,” it stated.

The ban was lifted for the benefit of retailers and other small businesses whose sales were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The ordinance also acknowledged the need for some people to “buy and consume alcohol drinks to help them deal with their anxieties.”
