IATF puts Israel, Switzerland, 6 others on ‘red list’
MANILA, Philippines — The government’s pandemic task force has placed on its “red list” Israel, Switzerland, and six other countries and territories, mandating a ban on all Philippine-bound travelers, except returning Filipinos, for a week.
Other areas on the red list are Azerbaijan, North Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro, St. Lucia, Guam, and the French overseas department of Guadeloupe in the Caribbean.
The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) places a country on the red list for being “high risk” in terms of COVID-19 cases.
All passengers — regardless of vaccination status and except returning Filipinos — who came from or who had been to the red list countries within 14 days are prohibited from entering the country from Sept. 12 noon until Sept. 18 midnight.
