Carmona to implement health and sanitation code

CARMONA, Cavite, Jan. 13 (PIA) -- The local government will soon implement an ordinance requiring all business establishments including individuals to secure health certificate and sanitary permit from the municipal health office (MHO).

The order, “Health and Sanitation Code of 2011” covers all food and non-food handlers employed in food establishments, food manufacturing, industrial and commercial establishments, beauty parlors, barber shops, beauty salons, department stores, medical clinics, motels, hotels, condominiums, spa, massage clinics, sauna baths, music lounges, disco pubs, beerhouses, nightclubs and water facilities.

Applicants for health certificate are required to undergo training and tests and submit original certificate of completion of the result of the test to the MHO. They are also required to attend the health and sanitation seminar.

On the other hand, all laboratory tests and radiologic examination (under Section 5) shall be conducted by the MHO, the laboratory of the Pagamutang Bayan ng Carmona or any Department of Health (DOH) accredited laboratories.

Meanwhile, violators will be slapped with penalties ranging from P1,000.00 for first offense to as high as P2,500.00 and/or imprisonment of not more than six months or both upon the discretion of the court.

The MHO is mandated as the lead agency tasked to implement and enforce the order and may even enlist the support of the business permit and licensing office, municipal environment and natural resources office, PNP-Carmona, office of the municipal agriculture and any other government agency, as it may deem necessary.
