The city government of Iloilo said it will comply with the latest resolution of the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases removing RT-PCR test as travel requirement

According to Mayor Jerry Treñas, the Iloilo City COVID Team would still discuss its next move “but our direction is really to comply with this resolution.”

On Saturday, Malacañang announced that IATF has approved the uniform travel protocols for all local government units (LGUs). (https://bit.ly/2NQmoyT)

The Department of the Interior and Local Government crafted these uniform travel protocols for land, air and sea, in close coordination with the Union of Local Authorities of the Philippines, League of Provinces of the Philippines, League of Municipalities of the Philippines, and the League of Cities of the Philippines.

Under the said protocols, travelers are no longer required to undergo Covid-19 testing except if the LGU of destination will make testing a requirement prior to travel.

They also do not need to quarantine unless they exhibit symptoms upon arrival at the LGU of destination.
