Lapu-Lapu City mayor Junard Chan said he will require travelers from Bohol, Negros Oriental, and Negros Occidental to present a negative result of the RT-PCR test before they may be allowed to enter the city.

This, according to Chan, aligns with the executive order that Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia issued recently.

Chan said the measure aims to prevent the spread of Covid-19, citing the rising infections in the said provinces. (https://bit.ly/3iKypmA)

“Of course we have to protect our city so the variants from these provinces won’t come in,” the city mayor said

Aside from these provinces, Chan said he also plans to require those coming from the NCR Plus to provide a negative Covid-19 test before traveling to Lapu-Lapu City.
