Residents from areas under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) are prohibited from entering the town of Barotac Viejo in Iloilo province.

The municipal inter-agency task force on Covid-19 has passed a resolution suspending the “non-essential entry” of persons from ECQ areas.

According to Mayor Nielo Tupas, some residents working in Passi City recently went home despite the component city’s ECQ status. (https://bit.ly/2Z61Cxa)
