“It has been simplified, as long as the worker is vaccinated,” Fifth District Congressman Emilio Bernardino Yulo said.

The worker who fails to present a vaccination card will be required to submit to a RT-PCR test which will be free of charge, based on the Executive Order No. 22-35 Series of 2022 that was issued by the Provincial Government on 20 July 2022.

Yulo added that the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) will be checking the housing facilities of the workers, and that the COVID-19 restrictions have been loosened which make it easy for migrant workers to enter the province.

Spot inspections and operations against contrabands and deadly weapons during Tiempo Galing will be localized, Police Lieutenant Judesses Catalogo of the Negros Occidental Provincial Police Office (NOCPPO) told DNX.

The respective police station of the area will undertake the operation like Oplan Bakal Sita to reduce criminal activity in the area, Catalogo said.
