The Quezon City council has passed an ordinance regulating the mobility of unvaccinated persons against COVID-19 in light of rising cases in the capital.

The ordinance states that unvaccinated persons may leave home only for essential reasons, such as work, food or medical services. They may not enter establishments for dine-in or other leisure reasons.

Workers who are not vaccinated or are partially vaccinated would have to undergo a COVID-19 test every two weeks at their personal expense.

The ordinance penalizes individual violators with a fine of P500 for the first offense, P1,000 for the second and P3,000 for the third and subsequent offenses.

Meanwhile, establishments found in violation of the ordinance are slapped with a fine of P3,000 for the first offense, P5,000 and suspension of business permit for the second offense, and P5,000 and cancellation of business permit for the third offense.
