Councilor Rojas: Bacolod now ready to accept LSIs


The city government of Bacolod is now ready to accept locally stranded individuals (LSIs) and returning residents after the city eased back to general community quarantine.

Arriving LSIs and returning residents will be brought to a school or hotel facility where they will be subjected to reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction test, said Councilor Cindy Rojas, chair of the city’s Action Team on Non-OFW Returning Residents.

“Once the result is negative, they will be allowed to go home and continue their 14-day quarantine,” according to Rojas. (

According to Rojas, school facilities were emptied as the city did not accept any LSIs for the month of September when it was under the tighter modified enhanced community quarantine.

“For now since we were not able to receive LSIs for the whole month of September, our school facilities are empty so we are very ready to receive our LSIs. Some of the LSIs also opt for hotel quarantine facilities at their own expense,” she added.

“For [those] who want to come home to Bacolod, please email your requirement. We only need a medical certificate and any government-issued ID with Bacolod address. Send to our email at, then we will help you process your PNP travel authority.”

Rojas appealed for ample time for them to process the requirement since her staff are on work-from-home scheme.
