CAMIGUIN (PIA)—Containing the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID)-19, especially with the presence of its new variants, Gov. Jurdin Jesus Romualdo will regulate the mobility of persons unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in the province.
“Non-fully vaccinated persons shall remain in their residence at all times except to work or to procure essential goods and services,” Romualdo said during the Serbisyong PPR, radio program, January 21.
To be permitted outside the residence for work, non-fully vaccinated persons must present appropriate identification and credentials such as company or office identification cards or employment certificates for employees, business permits for entrepreneurs, and barangay certification for farmers and fisherfolks.
For those procuring essential goods or services, non-fully vaccinated persons must present a barangay pass indicating the purpose for their movement to be permitted outside their residence.
The barangay pass shall be valid for one-time use only and such shall be issued by the punong barangay of the barangay where the non-fully vaccinated person resides. The barangay must also indicate the date of its issuance and the name of the non-fully vaccinated person it was issued to and the specific purpose for its issuance.
“Kanang mugawas sa balay nga dili baksinado, mangayo ka sa barangay og pass nga kung pwede ka mugawas,” Romualdo said.
(To those unvaccinated individuals who will go outside their residence, you need to get a barangay pass so you’ll know if you are allowed to go outside of your residence)
Further, Romualdo added that non-fully vaccinated persons shall be prohibited in dine-in restaurants and other food and beverage establishments including bars, karaoke bars, whether indoor or outdoor, tourist sites and attractions, and sports and recreation facilities.
They shall also be prohibited from leisure or social trips to malls, shops, resorts, and other similar establishments and venues.
Moreover, all establishments and venues shall require proof of COVID-19 vaccination from guests or customers to allow entry.
Drivers of public utility vehicles should require commuters a proof of full COVID-19 vaccination before allowing the latter to board on the vehicle. Non-fully vaccinated persons shall be prohibited in land transportation except for work or procurement of essential goods and services.
As to bringing of children or minors, Romualdo said fully vaccinated parents may bring their unvaccinated minor/children below 12 years of age outside of residence for leisure or social trips.
Minor/children who are 12-17 years old must have at least received their first COVID-19 vaccine dose and the accompanying adult must be fully vaccinated to be permitted outside of their residence.
