All passengers arriving in Iloilo City, except those from neighboring Western Visayas areas, will be required to submit negative RT-PCR test results issued not more than 72 hours prior to the date of travel to the city, Mayor Jerry Treñas said Wednesday, March 10.
Treñas issued Executive Order No. 18-B, Series of 2021, relative to the revised guidelines of the management of persons travelling to Iloilo City in preparation for the full implementation of Inter-Agency Task Force Resolution 101.
The mayor said they are requiring negative RT-PCR test results, especially from travelers from Manila, Cebu, and Davao where there have been an increase in COVID-19 cases.
The RT-PCR negative test results should be submitted to the Iloilo Emergency Operations Center for proper recording and verification, the mayor said.
The incoming travelers should also obtain a Notice of Coordination and Acceptance through the Iloilo City EOC prior to their intended date of travel, he added.
Travelers from Negros Occidental and other areas in WV entering Iloilo City will not be required to submit test results, he said.*
