EASTERN VISAYAS SUSPENDS ENTRY OF RETURNING RESIDENTS
To stop the spread of COVID-19, Eastern Visayas has suspended the entry of residents returning from other parts of the country for two weeks.
Presidential Management Staff Assistant Secretary Joseph Encabo said the Hatid Tulong program is coordinating with officials in the region, as well as Masbate and Romblon provinces, which also have a temporary ban on locally stranded individuals (LSI).
“Ipinapaalam po namin sa mga LGUs na iyan na kung maaari na po silang tumanggap ay handa na rin po kaming magbigay ng transportation assistance sa mga LSI na kababayan nila,” he said.
Some 250 people are currently waiting to lift the moratorium or the negative coronavirus test results needed for their travel.
