Iloilo City strictly implements ECQ pass policy

0

Residents in Iloilo City who wish to buy basic goods and commodities will now have to carry their quarantine passes at all times within the city.

Mayor Jerry Treñas issued Executive Order No. (EO) 064-2020, which mandates the presentation of the Barangay Quarantine Passes while moving within the city and in entering borders and city limits during the enhanced community quarantine period.

The new EO also tasked personnel of the Philippine National Police, Philippine Army, Iloilo City Public Safety and Transportation Management Office, barangay officials, and others persons in charge of maintaining peace and order to require and inspect quarantine passes. (https://bit.ly/2RQIOid)

Persons who will violate the order will face administrative and/or criminal charges.

The ECQ in Iloilo City started on March 20, 2020 after Treñas issued EO 055-2020 and was originally set to expire on April 14. It was extended to April 30 through Executive Order No. 061-2020 issued on April 8.

Last April 7, the city mayor announced that new and uniform quarantine passes will be distributed to residents through their respective barangays.
