The ban on inter-town traveling has been lifted by the provincial government, paving the way for the mass transportation system to operate again under the modified general community quarantine (MGCQ) status of Palawan.

Provincial information officer Winston Arzaga said that the lifting of the travel ban on June 1 also means Palaweños can already travel within the province without travel passes or quarantine IDs.

“Yes, allowed na [ang inter-municipal travel], alinsunod ‘yan sa guidelines na ibinaba sa mga areas na under na ng MGCQ. Hindi na kailangan ng travel pass o ng quarantine pass para maka-biyahe basta within the province,” Arzaga said.

However, Arzaga also said that travelers can still expect quarantine control points in strategic areas to check on minimum health standard compliances.

On this, travelers are advised to bring identification cards.

Arzaga said that minimum public health standards should be observed such as wearing face masks, physical distancing, and proper sanitation.

“May mga checkpoints pa rin silang makikita kaya magdala lang dapat ng ID para mapakita,” he said.

“Number one ‘yan na hindi dapat mawala, dapat nandyan ang social distancing at face mask. Nakalagay ‘yan sa guidelines,” Arzaga added.
