Camarines Sur Governor Miguel Villafuerte said that his province will have a two-week “trial period” to implement the uniformed travel protocols issued by the IATF.

The IATF earlier issued Resolution No. 101 which removed medical certificate, travel authority RT-PCR Test and quarantine as requirements for travelers. Nevetheless, LGUs may still require the RT-PCR test upon their discretion.

“Para sa ating probinsya, minarapat po naming magkaroon ng 2 linggong trial period, simula ngayong araw, para sa nasabing resolution,” said the governor.

“Ibig sabihin po, dalawang linggong hindi kami magre-require ng medical certificate, travel authority, RT-PCR test, at quarantine sa lahat ng papasok sa CamSur. Sa loob po ng 2 linggong ito ay oobserbahan at aaralin namin ang magiging epekto nito sa bilang ng kaso ng COVID-19 sa ating probinsya,” he added.

Meanwhile, the governor prodded his constituents to follow health protocols strictly.

“Sa kabila nito, wag kalilimutang mag-ingat palagi at sumunod sa standard safety protocols natin kontra sa COVID-19,” he added.

Meanwhile, Villafuerte shared the pertinent provisions of his EO 1 s 2021:

Section 3b.
