KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What did the Taguig City government do to restrict the movements of those who are not vaccinated?

    It has adopted the MMDA 22-01 that limits the movements of those who are not yet inoculated.
  • What will the citywide regulation focus on?

    It will focus on on areas with a high possibility of COVID-19 transmission such as public transportation and closed spaces, among others.
  • In a statement, the city said that its Safe City Task Force has issued Advisory No. 62 to effectively implement the MMDA 22-01.

    Taguig City Mayor Lino Cayetano said the adoption of the resolution was made primarily “to save lives and livelihood.”

    The enforcement of the city-wide regulation will focus on areas with a high possibility of COVID-19 transmission such as public transportation and closed spaces, and areas which have seen increased COVID-19 cases and low vaccination rates.

    However, everyone is still allowed to conduct individual outdoor exercise regardless of vaccination status, age, or comorbidities.

    Those who wish to enter public and private establishments in Taguig City are required to present proof of vaccination and a valid government ID with picture and address.
