LOVE BORACAY 2020 IS CANCELLED DUE TO COVID 19

DENR 6 CANCELS ENVIRONMENTAL EVENTS, 
LOVE BORACAY 2020 DUE TO COVID 19

            The Corona Virus Disease (COVID) 19 got the Environment Department cancelling all its scheduled events for March this year.

            In the light of the proactive move by city and provincial governments of Iloilo to protect its people from the local transmission of COVID 19, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) have decided to cancel all of its environmental events this month of March 2020.

            “We have to obey the rules and protect ourselves from this dreaded virus that is now gripping the world with fear. It is necessary for us to cancel our scheduled events for the month as protecting life is more important right now,” said Regional Executive Director Francisco E. Milla, Jr. of DENR Region 6.

Iloilo City Mayor Jerry P. Treñas issued Executive Order (EO) No. 50-A (an amendment to EO Nos. 042-A and 050) series of 2020, while Iloilo Governor Arthur R. Defensor, Jr. signed EO No. 028-C, series of 2020 to protect the residents in city and province of Iloilo and prevent the spread and/or local transmission of COVID. Travel restrictions, discouraging mass gathering, school suspension, observance of social distancing and community quarantine procedures are all provided in the two signed EOs.

In support to these initiatives, the DENR Region 6 cancelled its scheduled activities for the month of March, namely: International Day of Forests (March 21), World Water Day (March 22), Earth Hour (March 28) and Women’s Month activities (March 1-31). 

As to the observance of Earth Hour, Atty. Ramar Niel V. Pascua, Regional Director of Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) issued an advisory encouraging everyone to still take part in the global lights off event by turning off all non-essential lights in their homes, establishments and offices on March 28 at 8:30 PM until 9:30 PM. 

As a preventive measure, the DENR 6 management also provided alcohol and sanitizer for use of all its employees, suspended the holding of flag rites and use of biometrics, closed the canteen for two weeks until April 14, and put up three Designated Receiving Areas (DRAs) at the Courtyard (regional office), at the Surveys and Mapping Division, and at Manuel L. Lagunilla Compound Ground Floor Lobby for those with documents to bring. Personnel are also discouraged to receive personal visitors or bring family members in the office.

This week, the DENR 6 has also adopted the four-day work week scheme in compliance to Memorandum Circular (MC) No. 2020-02 signed by DENR Secretary Roy A. Cimatu. The Memo Circular provides for the alternate working arrangements to ensure safety of the personnel while continuing to deliver essential services of the Department despite the COVID 19 threat.

Also, the Boracay Inter-Agency Task Force (BIATF) has decided to cancel “LoveBoracay” 2020 events due to the threat of COVID 19, after the March 12 meeting attended by Malay Mayor Frolebar Bautista with TF member alternates presided by DENR USec Ernesto D. Adobo, Jr. representing Secretary Roy A. Cimatu as head of the Task Force. 

LoveBoracay is a weeklong series of events celebrating the rehabilitation of the world famous island. It is slated for April 26 – May 2. But this time, it has to be cancelled. 

DENR USec Benny Antiporda, when interviewed by the local media after the meeting, disclosed that “since the COVID 19 situation has not improved, and with the health of the attendees, organizers and stakeholders, a primary consideration, the BIATF has decided to cancel this event.”/DENR 6

Effectively making use of time while staying at home could mean so many things in our lives. While most people are probably enjoying movies and Korean series via Netflix and some are maybe recording videos for TikTok, this young artist of Passi, Iloilo was productively satisfying himself by making unique, funky and extravagant art pieces.


He accepted that his life became extra boring right after the announcement of Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) due of COVID19. Everyone is mandated to stay at home and firmly cooperate with the instructions to help make the work of LGUs, volunteers and front liners lighter. Instead of becoming less, he decided to conceptualize and create something unique and nic…

What can we make if we talk to God in a peaceful place? 
A millenial like me would always want something fun and nice after many days of hectic schedule. I could just frown if I am rushed and pressured by others; to live life fast is something I persoanlly don't like. I don't want to compete with time. I believe that life must be enjoyed slowly.
Traveling is my medicine. It is my way to improve my self. It is one best way to I reflect and thank God, how He made my life so beautiful and perfect. Oh, how I love His gift these days and forever; the "luxury of time". Now, I can definitely say yes to most opportunities coming my way. I have been traveling for free, and more free trips coming my way.
