[Credits: Municipal Government of El Nido ] The New Travel Guidelines

Within the islands of Palawan, the most active cases of the coronavirus (Covid19) were in Culion, El Nido, and Brooke’s Point. According to the Officer In Charge of the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) Dr. Faye Erica Labrador said during the online press briefing in ‘Alerto Palaweno’ that out of the 21 Municipalities in Palawan there are 13 municipalities that have active cases.

Base on the report, the highest cases happened on May 5, 2021, on Culion wherein there were 50 active cases and death in April this year. Then, it is followed by Brooke’s Point that has 37 active cases and 20 cases in El Nido. There were a total of 147 active cases in addition from Aborlan-5, Agutaya-1, Bataraza-6, Busuanga-7, Coron-2, Cuyo-1, Narra-4, Quezon-3, Roxas-4, Sofronio Espanola-7.

“Continue po ang ating case finding, everytime na mayroon tayong mga cases na nakukuha, continue ang ating contact tracing, as well as ang ating monitoring sa kanila, lahat po sila ay nasa facility lalo na ang Brooke’s Point at Culion na nandoon po ang ating level 1 and 2 na hospital, mayroong naka-admit sa kanila with moderate cases. Wala namang nai-report na nasa critical case, mayroong admitted pero hindi naman marami-karamihan ay mild at asymptomatic na nasa kani-kaniyang quarantine facilities,” Labrador said.

“Sa LGU naman everyday din na nagrereport sa ating Provincial Department of Health (DOH) at PHO kung saan nag-u-update sila sa kanilang munisipyo,” Labrador added.

Due to the increased numbers of cases and to control the spread of the virus in El Nido, the Municipal Government has established new travel restrictions that will start on May 5. The new travel guidelines are based on Executive Order 21-021 and Executive Order 21-025 effective for the residents, APORS, and Exempted APORS.

The Travel Pass that was used will be replaced by the Travel Stub (Monitoring Ticket) that will be given on the Border Points in El Nido that is located in Barangay Bagong Bayan and Mabini. The Travel Stub has a date and time of the return (for inbound) and exit (for outbound).

For El Nido Residents for Outbound Travels, they are required to secure Travel Stub at the Border Point but unessential or unnecessary travels won’t be allowed. They must be returned within 72 hours and if not, they should show a negative Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) prior to return to El Nido. Meanwhile, for the residents that have no Travel Stub, they are required to present a negative Rapid Antigen Test.

On the other hand, APORs Inbound and Outbound Travel Guidelines must have their Work ID, Work Order, Negative Antigen Test (for Inbound), and Travel Stub (for Outbound) that has to be accomplished at Border Control Points.

To the Exempted APORS from RT-PRC Test are the cargo logistics services for essential and non-essential goods, utilities for water, electricity IT, telecommunications, fuels, products, and waste management shall be afforded unhampered passage but may be subject to random inspection by the Philippine National Police. They will not stay in El Nido not more than 24 hours. The date and time of the entry will be listed at the Border Control Points.
