Provided that accurate and advance information are given, the City Government is fully committed to process, accept and quarantine all returning Overseas Filipino Workers and Locally Stranded Individuals.

Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo expresses hope that henceforth the responsible national agencies will be able to communicate accurately the number of returning residents and actual date/time of arrivals so that adequate personnel and vehicle will be deployed by the City’s Inter-Agency Task Force COVID-19.

Several vehicles, one of them a bus, are prepared to pick up the returning residents from the airport, seaport or terminals, who shall be assessed and placed under the mandatory 14-day quarantine at a government isolation facility or designated hotel.

Mayor Remollo confirms that returning residents are required to present a Medical Clearance Certification issued by the City/Municipal Health Officer and Travel Authority issued by the JTF CV Shield of place of origin upon arrival.

Meanwhile, repatriated OFWs must obtain negative results of the mandatory RE-PCR testing prior to their transport back to the city.
