·1 min read

SHIPPING lines departing from the port of Cebu City to other cities and provinces will be allowed to operate at full capacity provided that health protocols will be followed.

In an advisory Wednesday, December 22, 2021, Cebu City Councilor Joel Garganera, chief implementer of the Emergency Operations Center-Cebu City, said passengers are required to observe minimum public health standards at all times when traveling.

Health standards include wearing face masks, social distancing and observing proper ventilation.

Vaccinated individuals are required to present only their vaccination cards.

Unvaccinated individuals, however, need to present the result of their antigen or reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test.

Garganera also appealed to local government units of destination that Cebu City cannot comply with the S-Pass requirements due to "lack of power and intermittent signal within the island."

The Philippine Coast Guard on December 15 said over 1,600 people were stranded in various seaports in areas affected by Typhoon Odette.

President Rodrigo Duterte declared on Tuesday, December 21, a state of calamity in seven regions, namely, Mimaropa, Western Visayas, Central Visayas, Eastern Visayas, Northern Mindanao and Caraga.
