Due to a decreased alert level, the Antique relaxes the limits.
Antique SAN JOSE DE BUENAVISTA. After being reclassified under Alert Level 2 from its prior higher status, the province of Antique has relaxed its coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) restrictions.
Cherrylyn Quanico, a member of the Provincial Inter-Agency Task Force on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (IATF Covid-19) Executive Committee, said the province is providing its residents some latitude with the new categorization.
In an interview on Wednesday, she added, “During our IATF Covid-19 executive committee meeting yesterday (February 15), restaurants and resorts are now authorized to have 70% of their outside sitting capacity.”
Under Alert Level 3, restaurants and resorts were only allowed to operate at half capacity, according to Quanico.
The new instructions are outlined in Acting Governor Edgar Denosta’s Executive Order 008, which goes into effect on Wednesday and implements the Alert Level System 2 for Covid-19 response across the province.
Returning residents must show their Covid-19 immunization cards instead of the negative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test.
“The returning residents need to be fully vaccinated so they can only produce their vaccination cards and not their negative RT-PCR,” said Quanico, the provincial official in charge of returning residents.
On the request of returning residents, the requirement was lifted on February 3rd.
Many returning residents couldn’t afford the RT-PCR test, which may cost up to PHP5,000, according to Quanico.
