LAOAG CITY, Ilocos Norte—Ilocos Sur has eased its border protocols for fully vaccinated returning residents and will no longer require a negative COVID-19 test beginning December 1, Governor Ryan Luis Singson announced on Saturday, November 27.

In his local radio show, Singson said that returning residents would only be asked to show their COVID-19 vaccination card or document.

Singson said that the province is also dropping the mandatory 14-day quarantine for the fully vaccinated returning residents.

Unvaccinated and partially vaccinated individuals traveling to Ilocos Sur, however, would still be required to present a COVID-19 test result and undergo a full quarantine, Singson clarified.
