CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga — The provincial government of Pampanga is still implementing “house lockdowns” and continued to ban residents from visiting other barangays in the province.
This comes as Pampanga Governor Dennis Pineda disclosed that the stricter lockdown measure is extended until 30 April following the rise in coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) cases in Pampanga the past few weeks.
In his executive order (EO), Pineda also stressed that curfew hours will also be extended — from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. — and a liquor ban will be in effect until the end of April.
However, exempted from the curfew are health emergency personnel, government, frontline, essential and night shift workers and those who are traveling on medical and humanitarian reasons as long as they present necessary documents and identification at established checkpoints.
“To ensure the compliance of the public to this, we tasked the uniformed personnel and barangay officials to establish and maintain checkpoints for the duration of the EO,” Pineda said.
The EO also orders those below 18 and above 65 years old, with comorbidities, and pregnant women to stay home; while a maximum of two persons per household are allowed to go out to buy essential goods.
