Travelers required to present negative Covid result or vax card to enter NE

Border checkpoints will be set up in Nueva Ecija’s entry points beginning August 6 until August 20, according to Nueva Ecija Governor Aurelio Umali.

Under Resolution 2 issued by the Nueva Ecija Inter-Agency Task Force, travelers entering or passing through the province will be required to present a negative Covid-19 test result, a valid border pass, a valid IATF Authorized Person Outside of Residence ID card or a Covid-19 vaccination card.

The new rules will take effect on August 6, later than the original plan of August 1, according to a Punto Central Luzon report.

“Whereas, acknowledging the concerns raised by some sectors and to accord the Novo Ecijano community ample time to prepare for the adversities in the implementation of travel restrictions, particularly those with scheduled activities to be affected by the said Resolution 1 s. 2021, the NEIATF considered it best to defer the implementation of the said resolution and to adopt hereunder revisions thereto,” the resolution read in part.

“The NE-IATF may exempt any individual from compliance with the entry requirements for humanitarian considerations such as in cases of travels for emergency or medical or similar purposes,” it added.

Some 11 checkpoints will be set up at the borders of the province, officials said.
