Bago papasukin sa siyudad! Kidapawan City requires visitors to show necessary passes, health certificate


The Kidapawan City government has started implementing stricter measure for those who would enter the city after a confirmed coronavirus disease (Covid-19) case was reported in nearby M’lang town.

Mayor Joseph Evangelista said the decision to require non-residents to show some documents before allowing entry in the city was reached during the meeting of the City Anti-Covid-19 Task Force Tuesday, May 19.

“Maliban pa sa dapat magpakita sa mga checkpoints ng Municipal Quarantine Pass, valid ID, Blue Workers Pass (para sa mga nagta-trabaho sa Kidapawan City), kinakailangan na rin ang Municipal Health Certificate na Covid-19 free ang sino man na papasok sa Kidapawan City,” he said.

He said the local government has to enforce stringent measure to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in the city, which is currently placed under the general community quarantine.

The visitors have to write down in the locator slip the reason for entering the city and their destination for purposes of contact tracing.

“Tanging sa pagbili ng essentials lamang gaya ng pagkain, gamot at iba pang pangangailangan ang pagkuha ng locator pass at hindi sa pamamasyal sa lungsod,” Evangelista said.

He also ordered the Philippine National Police to confiscate fake food passes, which were allegedly being used by some individuals who want to enter the city.
