PGC issues guidelines to assist locally stranded individuals
TRECE MARTIRES CITY, Cavite May 22 (PIA) — The provincial government here laid out the guidelines for the assistance to locally stranded individuals (LSIs) in different cities and localities in the province.
LSIs can be workers, students, tourists, individuals stranded in different localities while in transit and other stranded individuals who expressed their intention to return to their place of residence/home origin.
The process will start with the notification of the LSI to the barangay for the desire to return to their hometown with the latter gathering information like name/s of the individual/s, place of origin and destination, estimated date of travel and the name of driver and information about the vehicle to be used.
This information will then be forwarded to the LGU thru the Local COVID-19 Task Force to facilitate the issuance of pertinent documents needed prior to departure.
The documents include a medical clearance certification issued by the City/Municipal Health Office certifying that: LSI is neither a contact, suspect, probable nor a confirmed case, and; had undergone 14-day quarantine before departure, of it the LSI was a confirmed case, he/she had tested negative with the RT-PCR test twice.
Travel Authority (TA) will be issued by the Commander, Provincial JTF CV Shield for intercity/municipality travel within the province while the Commander, Regional JTF CV Shield will issue the TA for transfer from one province to another province of the same region (intraregional), and for travel from one region to another region, the Travel Authority will be issued by the Commander JTF CV Shield.
With the completion of above documents, LGU of origin will coordinate with the receiving LGU for the unimpeded travel of the LSI.
It should be noted that receiving LGUs shall not deny entry of LSIs with complete documents provided that proper coordination was made thru the appropriate Task Force. (Ruel Francisco, PIA-Cavite with reports from the official Advisory post of the Provincial Government of Cavite)
