Remulla bares some guidelines for GCQ implementation in Cavite

Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla on Wednesday announced some guidelines on the implementation of the general community quarantine in the province after May 15.

In a Facebook post, Remulla said there would be revisions in the use of quarantine passes in the province. He said quarantine passes would be different from the valid workers' identification cards which will be used so that employees could go to their respective jobs.

Remulla advised residents to wait for the guidelines of the mayors in the issuance of passes. He, however, stressed that one quarantine pass would be allowed in each household.

Remulla said those who would look for jobs amid the GCQ will be provided with a transit pass.


When it comes to public transportation, Remulla said operations of public utility vehicles would partly resume. Authorities will allow mass transport vehicles to operate provided that they will observe the 50% operating capacity.

Tricycles can only have one passenger, Remulla said.

There is no decision yet about allowing two riders in a motorcycle, the governor added.

He also said Cavite residents would be allowed to go from one town to another provided that they are quarantine pass holders.

"Ang biyahe sa loob ng lalawigan ay pwede na. Halimbawa, ang taga-Bacoor na kailangan pumunta sa Mendez ay pwede na. Subject ito sa one-day transit pass mula sa mayor," Remulla said.

"Hindi po ito 'pasyal pass,' one-day lang ang validity at para sa q-pass holder lamang ang pwede mag-apply," he explained.

Other activities

Remulla also announced that salon and barber shops would be opened for customers provided that social distancing will be observed.

Children who will go to salons and barber shops will be given a special transit pass from the barangay. He or she must be accompanied by a quarantine pass holder.

"Hindi po ito ‘pasyal pass’ para sa pamilya. Isang bata lamang at may oras na nakatakda para dito," Remulla said.

Remulla also said liquor ban would still be in effect beyond May 15 as the liquor license law is not yet passed by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan.

Meanwhile, curfew will still be enforced from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., except those with work permits. —Anna Felicia Bajo/LBG, GMA News
