Baguio City to Require Non-Residents to Present Medical Certificate and Identification Cards Upon Entry
Baguio City police chief announced that they would require the residents from nearby towns to present medical certificate.
On Monday (November 23, 2020), Baguio, Police Col. Allen Rae Co said that the city would require residents outside of the town to show a medical certificate upon entry. The city is now implementing stricter rules and regulations due to COVID-19.
Last weekend, the City of Pines has tightened their security system to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus disease. The medical certificate would prove that they are working in Baguio.
The residents from the towns of Tuba, La Trinidad, Sablan, and Tublay are required to show the identification cards.
“‘Di po natin sila pinapahirapan, as a matter of fact since the pandemic started we treated residents of mga katabingbayan natin as residents of Baguio, But of course if you enjoy the same privileges, inaasahan po na you will also be subject to same restrictions and prohibitions,” the cop executive said.
Earlier, the town have opened its doors to Luzon tourists last October 2020 after forming a tourism bubble with its nearby towns. However, the city only allows 500 people only who passed the RT-PCR coronavirus tests.
