The Baguio city government has pushed through with its stricter implementation of border control following a spike in coronavirus disease (COVID19) cases in the Summer Capital.
This after Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong, La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda, Sablan Mayor Manuel Munar Jr, Tuba Mayor Clarita Sal-ongan, and Tublay Mayor Armando Lauro held a closed-door meeting about the concerns of residents regarding the temporary entry restrictions.
During the meeting, the BLISTT mayors agreed to adjust the documentary requirements needed for La Trinidad, Sablan, Tublay, and Tuba residents.
From requiring a medical certificate, residents will now only need a medical clearance.
Medical clearances will also be effective from November 26 to December 4 or the duration of the stricter border policy.
