Navotas folk still required to carry quarantine pass

June 01, 2020

NAVOTAS City Mayor Toby Tiangco yesterday reminded residents  going to the public market to carry their home quarantine pass (HQP) even as the national government announced that people allowed to leave their homes are no longer required to bring such permit.

Tiangco said that even if  the city has been placed under general community quarantine (GCQ), it is important for residents to carry their HQP since they are still implementing an MWF/TThS market schedule.

The mayor clarified that the requirement of carrying a HQP is only for those who will go to the public market. Those who will go to grocery, drug store and sari-sari store are no longer required to carry their quarantine pass.

He also reminded residents to continue wearing face masks to protect themselves or avoid infecting others and observed one to two meters physical distancing.

As of yesterday, the city government of Navotas continued to implement the liquor ban and curfew hours from 8 p.m. up to 5 a.m. while elderly, minors, youth and vulnerable sectors were reminded to stay at home.
