PGC delegates GCQ guidelines implementation to LGUs
TRECE MARTIRES CITY, Cavite May 14 (PIA) — Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla clarified and delegated the implementing guidelines for the GCQ to the respective Mayors of the cities and municipalities in the province.
He reiterated that the respective LGUs will formulate their own systematic procedures for the implementation of said guidelines.
Below are the clarifications made by Gov. Remulla posted in his official FB Page yesterday regarding certain issues on the implementation of the GCQ starting May 16, 2020.
The Office of the Mayors will issue revised Quarantine passes as well as Travel passes. Workers and employees reporting for work will be allowed to leave their residence with their company IDs as travel pass that is sufficient to allow passage for inter-city travels.
For Q-pass holders who will resume work during the GCQ, the revised Q-pass should be given to the member of the household who will be left to housekeep, while for the senior citizens a special pass would allow them to go out of residence to buy food and basic essentials.
Resumption of public transportation like PUJ, PUB, Tricycles, Multi-Cabs and Baby Bus (Baby Bus operations are under IATF rules) will be at 50% capacity only to allow for social distancing of passengers. Tricycles will only have one passenger and their operation will be pursuant to the agreement between the LGU and respective TODA drivers/operators.
The appeal for backrides on single motorcycles was not tackled by the IATF, therefore there is no ‘Couples Pass’ yet.
Meanwhile, barbershops and salons will resume operations provided social distancing is observed at all times. Children below 20 years of age will have to secure a Special Transit Pass from the Barangay and will be accompanied by the Q-pass holder in order to avail of these grooming services.
Intra city tavel are allowed for official work duties but for non-work related matters, Q-pass holders need a 1-day Transit Pass from the Mayor’s office which only be valid for the day while a 1-week Transit Pass is given to jobseekers that is renewable weekly.
The Sangguniang Panlalawigan have not yet passed an ordinance to approve the Liquor License Law therefore, the Liquor Ban still remains in effect.
Governor Jonvic stressed that,”The IATF ruled that the province will be placed under GCQ status. It is not a freedom pass. It only allows for business and industries to open so the province’s economy could start.” (Ruel Francisco, PIA-Cavite with reports from Gov. Jonvic Remulla FB page)
