With the influx of students going to the i-hub center these days, town mayor Fritzie Dela Cruz-Gapasin said Tuesday “the youth center is strictly intended for school-related activities only.”
She said online games and noisy students are not allowed in the area. Students can also bring their own laptops and connect to the internet.
Plastic bottles or cups and other utensils are not also allowed inside but users can bring their own tumbler and have a refill at the water dispenser provided.
As the country continues to grapple with the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) health crisis, i-hub users are reminded to observe minimum health protocols.
