Secretary Salvador Panelo on Thursday reminded the public that some local government units (LGU) in the National Capital Region will require residents to bring their quarantine passes as enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) took effect midnight Friday.
In his online program “Counterpoint,” Panelo reminded residents to bring their quarantine passes if they go out to buy essential items or things they need.
“If you have to go to the store, if you get vaccinated, if you go to buy food, if you have to go to the pharmacy to buy medicine, you have to show your quarantine pass as proof — that your errand is essential. If you are not allowed to go outside, go home,” the President’s chief legal counsel said.
Various LGU will issue quarantine passes to give assistance from the Social Amelioration Program and to accelerate the government’s vaccination program against Covid-19, he added.
All the 17 local governments in Metro Manila will enforce curfew from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. Some local governments are also imposing liquor bans.
