Taguig imposes mobility restrictions on unvaccinated individuals

/ 09:18 PM January 09, 2022

MANILA, Philippines — The city of Taguig on Sunday announced that it will begin to impose restrictions on the movement of unvaccinated individuals amid the exponential growth in COVID-19 cases.

Taguig is the latest city to impose the ordinance in accordance with the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority’s (MMDA) Resolution 22-01, Series of 2022, regulating the mobility of unvaccinated individuals.

According to Taguig Mayor Lino Cayetano, the adoption of the said resolution was made primarily “to save lives and livelihood.”

“Unvaccinated individuals are at a higher risk if  infected with the COVID-19 virus. The regulation of the mobility of this vulnerable segment of the population is also a better alternative to a total lockdown that affects the entire economy,” Lino said in a statement.

The city-wide enforcement of the restriction focuses on areas with a high possibility of COVID-19 transmission such as public transportation and closed spaces, and areas which have seen increased COVID-19 cases and low vaccination rates.

The city government also urged the private sector to verify its employees’ vaccination status.

Meanwhile, fully vaccinated individuals who wish to enter public and private establishments are then required to present proof of vaccination and a valid government ID with their picture and address.

Unvaccinated people are required to stay in their homes at all times under the MMDA resolution, with the exception of buying needed goods and services such as food, water, medical services, public utilities, and work.

They are also forbidden from indoor and outdoor or al fresco dining in restaurants and other food establishments, leisure and social trips to malls, hotels, event venues, sports, country clubs, and similar facilities.

Traveling via public transit — except for the procurement of essential goods and services — is likewise prohibited.

Individual outdoor activity is still, however, permitted for everyone, regardless of vaccination status, age, or comorbidities.
