Visitors not allowed in Pampanga unless they show negative Covid-19 result
Visitors shall not be allowed to enter Pampanga province beginning Friday night unless they present negative results of RT-PCR or antigen tests done 48 hours before entry, according to the latest executive order of Pampanga Governor Dennis Pineda.
The governor issued Executive Order 17, which is valid from August 2 to 15, to curb transmission of the Delta variant of Covid-19.
Officials expect an influx of non-residents in the province due to the reimposition of the enhanced community quarantine in the National Capital Region (NCR) Plus beginning August 6.
The EO also 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., but workers and business people are exempted.
“Tuloy ang hanapbuhay,” Pineda said in a statement.
Only residents aged 18-60 years old are allowed to go out of their homes while senior citizens and minors are ordered to stay home.
