Pineda imposes tougher lockdown rules in Pampanga
Once again, Pampanga Governor Dennis Pineda has announced tougher restrictions and protocols to curb transmission of the Delta variant of Covid-19 in the province.
The governor issued the order even as the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases placed Pampanga under the more relaxed Modified General Community Quarantine.
Under Executive Order 17, which is valid from August 2 to 15, Pineda instructed officials to implement strict enforcement of minimum public health standards like the wearing of face mask and shield, distancing of 1-2 meter, frequent handwashing, rubbing alcohol on hands and cough etiquette.
“Kailangan po nating maghigpit. Kakayanin natin kung magtutulungan tayo. Kailangan ko po ang kooperasyon ninyo. Sumunod po tayo sa executive order para maproteksyonan ang mga pamilya at mahal sa buhay,” Pineda said.
The EO reactivated barangay checkpoints and border controls under the supervision of the Philippine National Police, and prohibited residents from going from one village to another.
A curfew has been imposed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., with the governor exempting workers and business people.
Non-Pampanga residents shall also not be allowed inside the province unless they present negative Covid-19 results from testing conducted 48 hours before the visit.
