CEBU City residents with quarantine passes are now allowed to go out on Sundays starting Aug. 9, 2020.
Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella said quarantine pass holders should use the day to access essential goods and attend religious activities.
Cebu City has been placed under general community quarantine (GCQ) until Aug. 15.
“Whether their passes ends with odd or even numbers, they are allowed to go out,” said Labella in an interview on Aug. 2.
“As long as their purpose is essential,” he continued.
Despite this development, Labella reminds the public to continue observing the minimum health standards such as wearing of mask, observing social distancing, and washing of hands.
Even if Cebu City was placed under GCQ, Labella ordered to continue the usage of the 178,000 quarantine passes issued by the City Government.
Before, only authorized persons outside residence (Apor) are allowed to go out during Sundays.
On weekdays, the number coding of quarantine passes still applies in which codes ending with odd numbers (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) are allowed to go out during Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, while those ending with even numbers (2, 4, 6, 8, 0) can go out on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. (JJL)
