Borongan City’s travel restrictions have been tightened
Due to an increase in coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) infections, the Borongan City administration in Eastern Samar imposed a modified enhanced community quarantine from June 13 to June 26.
The municipal epidemiology and surveillance section determined that there is a fresh wave of Covid-19 epidemic in the city, prompting Mayor Jose Ivan Dayan Agda to issue Executive Order No. 002-0621.
“The city of Borongan’s Covid-19 issue requires the deployment of severe but effective health standard protocols,” Agda said in a statement on Tuesday.
Aside from the severe minimum health regulations, resident travel restrictions, and curfew hours, some businesses, including those that provide leisure and amusement, have temporarily ceased operations.
Individual outdoor activities such as jogging, walking, running, bicycling, surfing, skimboarding, and badminton are temporarily restricted, as are outdoor and indoor sporting activities, including the operation of gyms.
Tourism sites are also closed, however lodging facilities certified by the Department of Tourism (DOT) are allowed to function under the standards and regulations established by the local inter-agency task force on emerging infectious diseases and the DOT.
Outside gatherings and internal gatherings with persons who are not direct household members are likewise prohibited.
Only 25% of the venue’s capacity is permitted to be used for religious events. Only direct family members are allowed to attend funeral wakes.
The conditions for returning inhabitants from outside the area include a negative Covid-19 swab test done three days before to arrival, a valid identity card, and a QR code. They are obligated to report to the authorities of their community.
Returning residents from Eastern Samar must provide proof of residence in the form of a barangay certificate, while those from outside the province must provide valid identity and a QR code.
Outside residents who are approved are obliged to submit ID cards at border crossings.
Violations of the directive will result in a warning and a punishment of up to PHP5,000, as well as the cancellation of a business permit and a fine of PHP5,000 for commercial enterprises.
Borongan City has 300 confirmed Covid-19 cases, 236 recoveries, five fatalities, and 59 ongoing cases as of June 14.
