Navotas Mayor Toby Tiangco has restricted the entry into the city of travelers from areas outside the NCR Plus bubble to avoid another COVID-19 surge.

Those who will visit Navotas need to register at s-pass.ph, an online travel management system developed by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), and submit documents such as health declaration or medical certificate from the health office of their place of origin, indicating that the travelers are not a COVID patients nor suspected or probable cases.

They also need to submit a negative RT-PCR swab test result, a barangay certificate stating that they are not required to undergo quarantine or have already completed it, and the full address of their destination in Navotas.

The restriction applies to essential and non-essential travels of individuals coming from places outside Metro Manila, Rizal, Bulacan, Cavite, and Laguna.

“The travel restriction is a precautionary measure to ensure that we will not suffer again another surge of COVID cases. We saw an influx of cases and high transmission rates in places outside of NCR Plus. We need to implement additional safeguards to keep our people safe,” Tiangco said.
