Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson and the mayors of Negros Occidental have agreed to ban non-essential travel from Negros Oriental to Negros Occidental for two weeks.

“We are not allowing nonessential travel. But for Iloilo, Panay and Negros Occidental, we will keep it open,” said Lacson.

The governor made the declaration after the Philippine Society for Microbiology and Infectious Diseases Western Visayas recommended to close the borders or ports of entry in Negros Occidental to non-essential travel for two weeks. (

Lacson, however, said that non-essential establishments will continue to open at 30 percent of the venue capacity.

As of June 11, the Department of Health-Western Visayas reported that Negros Occidental logged 60 active cases, bringing its total Covid-19 cases to 2,096.
