The government's inter-agency task force on COVID-19 will tackle a proposal to ban Christmas caroling, Malacañang said Friday, after a local government official broached the idea to prevent the spread of the virus.
The matter will be among the issues to be tackled by the IATF in its next meetings, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said.
"Hindi pa po iyan napagpulungan at napag-usapan sa IATF. Pero I am sure po ma-aagenda iyan sa mga susunod na meeting ng IATF,” Roque said in a televised briefing.
Cagayan Governor Manuel Mamba on Thursday called on the IATF to ban all forms of street caroling during the holidays, saying an order from the national government would be more effective than a local ordinance.
