The request of another city in Negros Occidental for a moratorium on the arrival of Locally Stranded Individuals (LSIs) has been granted.

The Regional Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases granted the request of Talisay City for a moratorium on the arrival of its LSIs from December 20 to January 2.

The request was made to pave the way for the rehabilitation and renovation of the Rafael B. Lacson Memorial High School quarantine facility in Talisay City.
