Taguig issues unified quarantine pass for easy aid distribution


The local government of Taguig began issuing unified quarantine passes to families in the city for easier distribution of aid as the enhanced community quarantine remains.

Mayor Lino Cayetano said the unified quarantine pass will also help with the contact tracing of suspected coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases.

“May mga kaniya-kaniyang barangay na nag-i-issue ng quarantine pass pero sa lungsod ng Taguig sabi ko, ‘di mo maiiwasan lalo ‘pag nagkaroon ng modified ECQ na lilipat ka sa iba’t ibang barangay. So ‘yong unified quarantine pass will help us monitor movement ng mga tao,” he said in Bam Alegre’s Wednesday report on 24 Oras News Alert.

The city government began the distribution of the passes last week.

The unified quarantine pass may be used by any family member who is 18 to 59 years old and  is not sick. The holder must also bring any government-issued ID when using the pass. —Ma. Angelica Garcia/LDF, GMA News
