Ilocos Sur eases travel protocols; curfew hours still in effect

VIGAN CITY, Ilocos Sur — Gov. Ryan Singson issued a directive yesterday easing travel protocols for those entering the province but the implementation of curfew hours remain effective.

In his Executive Order No.22, issued March 9, Gov Singson said there is a need to supplement the existing travel protocols and to further streamline the government’s approach to the gradual reopening of the economy.

For returning residents and overseas foreign workers, Singson said the only requirements needed are identification cards, coordination with respective local government units. Applicants must register at S-PaSS and there is no need for them to undergo quarantine protocols.

For passersby, Singson said there is also a need to register with S-PaSS as well as show ID and delivery reciepts for cargoes.

For tourists, however they need to secure a RT PCR test if they came from areas where the General Community Quarantine is still observed within 72 hours prior to travel; ID, create S PaSS account, and DOT-accredited booking travel confirmation.

For visitors, they need to show ID and S PaSS only, said Singson.

However, to ensure further the safety of the public, Singson said there is still a need to implement curfew hours from 12 midnight to 5 a.m.

Singson said only four days are allowed for wakes.
