The previous EOs regulating the entry of Mabinay, Negros Oriental residents into Kabankalan City, entry of Basay residents into Hinoba-an town and the entry of Canlaon City and Vallehermoso residents into San Carlos City will remain in full force and effect, the latest directive stated. (

The EO also suspended the operations of all beaches, resorts and water parks in the province from June 23 to 25 coinciding with the celebration of the feast of St. John the Baptist.
