Zambo City is now on Alert Level 1, however, the RT-PCR requirement is still in place.
ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines — The city government has kept the negative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) requirement for inbound travelers from locations with a higher alert level status notwithstanding the transition to Alert Level 1.
The national Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases has demoted the city to Alert Level 1 from March 1 to 15.
Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco-Salazar said on Tuesday that a negative RT-PCR test result should be available in 120 hours, and a fast antigen test results in 24 hours, from the moment the specimen is collected.
“Those who have been fully vaccinated and boosted are exempt from the need,” Salazar explained. “If accompanied by fully vaccinated and boosted parents or guardians, children under the age of 18 do not need to undertake an RT-PCR or antigen test.”
Children under the age of 18 are allowed to visit malls, parks, and public areas, regardless of vaccination status, as long as they are accompanied by fully vaccinated parents or guardians.
Salazar further stated that people who have been properly vaccinated and those who have gotten vaccination boosters against the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) are exempt from the curfew hours.
Despite the fact that 100 percent capacity is now authorized, organizers of social gatherings and other events must still notify the City Tourism Office and submit the attendees’ vaccination cards, according to the mayor.
Public transportation vehicles may carry their entire seating capacity, and government agencies and instrumentalities must employ 100% on-site personnel.
Salazar urged the public to seek Covid-19 vaccine boosters since they will be required to participate in activities starting in April.
The public is recommended to maintain minimal health standards by avoiding crowded venues, closed spaces, and close-contact situations.
