Gov’t personnel on official business now exempted from LGUs’ testing, quarantine protocols
MANILA, Philippines — Government officials and personnel on official business are now allowed to travel without undergoing the mandatory testing and quarantine protocols of their destination’s local government units, Malacañang said Friday.
“[A]pproved by the IATF is the unimpeded travel of government officials/personnel on official business, including employees of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas and the Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation, to their place of destination,” Inter–Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) and presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said in a statement.
Roque said government officials are exempt from testing and quarantine protocols “as long as they can present valid IDs issued by their respective government agency and an original or a certified true copy of the Travel Authority/Order issued by the Department Secretary or his/her designated official.”
They, however, must pass the symptom screen at the point of their destination or upon boarding public transportation.
