RTF and RIATF-8 support 'No vaccination card, no entry' policy in LGUs and establishments in Region 8

The RTF and RIATF Eastern Visayas support the "No vaccination card, no entry" policy in LGUs and establishments in the Region.

TACLOBAN CITY — The Regional Task Force (RTF) and Regional Inter-Agency Task Force on COVID-19 (RIATF) Eastern Visayas are supporting the "No vaccination card, no entry policy" in LGUs and establishments in the Region.

On a media report by RMN Tacloban, RIATF Chairman and DILG Regional Director Atty. Arnaldo Escober, stated that they have already approved two resolutions that strongly urge LGUs to adopt or implement resolutions, policies, and ordinances that will increase the demand for Covid-19 vaccines, where the vaccination card or certificate can be used as the basis for entry into private establishments.

The second resolution calls on private establishments and the sector to support the RIATF's recommendation that establishments limit access to only vaccinated individuals.

According to DOH VIII data, up to 942,014 individuals have been vaccinated, the most in the provinces of Northern Samar, Western Samar, and Leyte. Biliran, Tacloban City, and Ormoc City have the highest number of vaccinated individuals.

No stricter travel restrictions will be imposed in the region, according to OCD Regional Director Lord Bayron Torrecarion. People who have been vaccinated and have a vaccination card or those who have a negative RT-PCR can still enter Eastern Visayas.

PLCol Ma Bella Rentuaya, spokesperson for Police Regional Office VIII, on the other hand, stated that the COVID-19 checkpoints may be returned to entry and exit areas if ordered by the PNP headquarters.

RTF and RIATF encourage all sectors, particularly local governments, to continue to encourage unvaccinated people to get vaccinated. —Tacloban News Update (Source: RMN Tacloban)
