Bacolod Won’t Allow Home Quarantine For LSI Without Swab Test Results
BACOLOD CITY LSI PROTOCOL – Due to rising cases of COVID-19, the city of Bacolod said they won’t allow home quarantine for locally stranded individuals.
Currently, Bacolod City, Negros Occidental, had reported 51 cases of the new coronavirus, COVID-19. As such, the LGUs imposed a new protocol that states returnees wouldn’t be allowed to enter the city and do home quarantines without swab test results.
There have been several locally stranded individuals (LSI) from places like Manila and Cebu who want to come home to their families. However, due to limitations with COVID-19 testings, this has been delayed.
LSI from Manila who wanted to go home to Visayas and Mindanao were stranded at airports and docks as they weren’t allowed to enter due to a lack of swab tests. Meanwhile, there appeared to be a miscommunication between some LGUs and travel agencies.
Meanwhile, the Bacolod Inter Agency Task Force said they came up with the decision after their meeting with Mayor Evelio “Bing” Leonardia.
According to a report from TV Patrol Negros, Bacolod IATF chairperson Vice Mayor, El Cid Familiaran said they would request the national IATF to gradually send home stranded Bacolodnons so they could be placed in quarantine centers.
