Ilocos Norte Governor Matthew Manotoc said people who are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms won’t be allowed to enter the province.
The provincial government has established checkpoints at the Ilocos Norte’s borders to help contain the spread of the coronavirus disease.
But Manotoc said residents of Ilocos Norte are exempted from the travel ban.
“We will deny entry all individuals entering Ilocos Norte with symptoms of COVID-19, unless they are residents of the province,” he said.
The Ilocos Norte politiko said all motorists are required to be tested with a thermal scanner at the checkpoints.
