Inanunsyo ngayong Martes ng Bulacan provincial government na hindi muna papayagang makapasok ang mga uuwing locally-stranded individuals (LSI) habang nasa ilalim ng modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) ang lalawigan.
Ayon kay Bulacan Governor Daniel Fernando, layon ng hakbang na higpitan ang paglabas-masok ng mga tao sa Bulacan at Metro Manila nang mapigilan ang lalo pang pagkalat ng coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
“No LSI muna na manggagaling sa ibang lugar, lahat ng papasok sa main, hindi muna namin tatangapin habang naka-MECQ tayo. Yung papasok ng Maynila talagang hihigpitan namin ang pagbabantay,” ani Fernando.
Bilang bahagi ng hakbanging ito, naglagay na ng checkpoint ang Bulacan Police sa entry at exit points ng lalawigan pati na sa mga daanang papunta at pabalik ng North Luzon Expressway at Metro Manila.
Ayon kay Bulacan Provincial Police director PCol. Lawrence Cajipe, dadaan sa inspeksyon ang mga sasakyan upang matiyak na authorized person outside residence (APOR), medical at iba pang essential workers lang ang bumibiyahe.
“Kung hindi sila APOR, huwag na nilang pilitin palabas. Madedelay lang sila pagmumulan lang ng tensyon, kung di naman medical emergency huwag nang lumabas,” ani Cajipe.
Paalala rin ng mga otoridad, suspendido sa ngayon ang biyahe ng mga pampasaherong bus, jeep at iba pang pampublikong sasakyan.
Epektibo rin ang curfew hours sa lalawigan mula alas-otso ng gabi hanggang ala-singko ng umaga. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Nestor Torres)

Ito lamang po ang paraan para malaman ninyo dahil karamihan po ng ating positive ay walang sintomas o asymptomatic (It would be better know if you have COVID-19. This is the only way to know it because most of our positive cases are asymptomatic),” he added.
