Makati restricts the movement of residents who have not been vaccinated.
Unvaccinated people will have their mobility restricted by the Makati City government.
Unvaccinated residents must remain in their homes at all times, save while purchasing critical commodities or transacting with essential services, according to a Thursday’s advice.
This comes after the Makati City Council passed Local Ordinance No. 2022-005, which governs unvaccinated citizens’ migration among communities.
Unvaccinated persons are also barred from dining indoors or outside in restaurants and other food enterprises, as well as accessing malls, hotels, event sites, and other comparable facilities for leisure or social purposes, according to the city legislation.
It is also forbidden for them to travel within the country using public transit by land, sea, or air.
Before being allowed to work, unvaccinated people must have a reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) Covid-19 test every two weeks at their own expense.
Violators will be fined PHP3,000 for the first violation, PHP4,000 for the second crime, and PHP5,000 or six months in prison or both for the third and subsequent offenses.
If the violators are juveniles, the Punong Barangay will issue a warning and ask their parents or guardians to attend parent effectiveness training for first-time offenders.
Parents of child violators will be fined PHP4,000 for the second violation and PHP5,000 or a maximum of six months in prison for the third and subsequent offenses, depending on the court’s judgment.
Minor offenders, along with their parents or guardians, would be referred to the Makati Social Welfare Department for evaluation and other required intervention and rehabilitation programs.
