The Western Visayas Regional Inter-Agency Task Force has approved the suspension of the arrival of Locally Stranded Individuals into two cities in northern Negros Occidental effective today, October 23.
Entry of LSIs into Victorias City is suspended until October 30 and to San Carlos City until November 6, RIATF Resolution No. 50 Series of 2020 issued yesterday said.
Victorias officials had requested a seven-day moratorium on the entry of returning overseas Filipinos and LSIs to the city to enable them to decongest and disinfect quarantine facilities.
San Carlos City made a similar request but asked for a 14-day moratorium.
As of Wednesday San Carlos City had 94 active COVID-19 cases and Victorias City had 63.*
