OLONGAPO CITY — Mayor Rolen Paulino Jr. signed today, Sept.2, an executive order reimposing the requirement of quarantine pass and adjusting curfew hours in the city.
Executive Order No. 86 to take effect on Sept. 9, 2020 is in response to “the need to re-establish stricter quarantine protocols” in the wake of the recent increase in the number of coronavirus cases in the city.
Persons who will access goods and services from the allowed industries in the city will be required quarantine passes. Commercial establishments and public transport are enjoined to “withhold services” to those who fail to present any quarantine pass.
The new curfew hours said will be from 9:30 p.m. to 4 a.m.. Authorized persons outside residences (APOR) are exempted from the curfew hours provided they present a valid work pass or “proof that their presence in public places is for their respective authorized cause.”
Food deliveries will be allowed beyond curfew hours provided the establishments operating them secure a certification from the Office of the City Mayor that they are engaged in such activity subject to compliance on the minimum health standards,” the order said.
Olongapo City has been placed on “Low Risk MGCQ” by the national inter-agency task force on Aug. 31.
