Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Oscar Moreno has ordered the closure of places where crowds may gather during the Lenten Week from March 27 to April 4.

While under the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) guidelines which allow religious services but only on a limited and controlled capacity of people inside churches and other places of worship. The order disallows religious activities such as processions and stations of the cross usually performed by the Roman Catholics.

The mayor’s executive order also includes the closure of beaches, resorts and amusement places. They will be closed also on the specified dates.
