Bohol community quarantine declared by Governor Arthur Yap.

BOHOL COMMUNITY QUARANTINE – Governor Arthur Yap said on Friday that the entire province of Bohol “community quarantine” starting next week.

Due to the alarming growth of confirmed cases of Coronavirus Diseases 2019 (COVID-19) in the Philippines, most especially the rise in terms of death tolls related to it, President Rodrigo Duterte declared countermeasure and put Metro Manila in community quarantine.

And now, following the pronouncement, Governor Arthur Yap placed the entirety of Bohol province under “community quarantine” starting next week, Monday, March 16, 2020, until Friday, March 20, 2020, due to the threats of the coronavirus. Basically, a five-day community quarantine will be implemented.

Starting midnight of March 16, any person will be banned to enter or exit the province by land and see. This is to “seriously prepare” measure versus threats of novel coronavirus. This move is to contain the spread of virus.

He clarified that this is not at all a lockdown for residents are still allowed to freely leave their homes even within the said quarantine period. This can possibly be extended to March 20 depending on provincial government’s evaluation.

Also, as per Bohol Chronicle’s report, the Old Tagbilaran City Airport will serve as a 60-bed isolation for persons who are “seriosuly ill” and more beds for isolation at Capitol Annex Building.

A statement from Governor Yap says, “A lockdown means nobody goes in, and nobody goes out. Under community quarantine, those who want to leave are allowed to leave. Mo adto ka sa public market, pwedi. Mo simba ka, pwedi.”
