Curfew, checkpoints back in Subic freeport
Curfew hours and border checkpoints are back in the Subic Freeport Zone in response to the surge of coronavirus infections.
In an advisory on Monday, Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority chair and administrator Wilma Eisma announced the reimposition of curfew in the freeport from 12 midnight to 5 a.m. from March 22 to April 4.
Workers and employees traveling to and from SBMA’s jurisdiction during the curfew hours are required to show gate passes and company ID cards, she said.
But cargo shipments are still allowed in and out of the Subic area provided that drivers and crew wear face mask and face shield, according to Eisma.
She added that visitors from the “NCR Plus bubble” will be allowed into Subic only for business purposes, and should show email confirmation of appointment in the freeport.
“Those from NCR Plus who would stay in Subic for more than 24 hours will be required to show negative RT-PCR test results with a validity of 24 hours, while persons from MGCQ (modified general community quarantine) areas who would stay here for 4 days and 3 nights or beyond will also be required to undergo RT-PCR test,” Eisma said.
The NCR Plus bubble covers Metro Manila, Bulacan, Rizal, Laguna, and Cavite.
