DILG Sec. Año: Workers to present IDs upon entering Metro Manila




The declaration of the government of community quarantine has made the citizenry somewhat confused and in disarray because it has raised some valid questions which ties to the policy of government in maintaining a skeletal workforce in government offices in exception of the front liners – members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines(AFP), Philippine National Police(PNP) , and the passionate and very brave health workers of the Department of Health (DOH).
As early as now, government employees living outside of the National Capital Region(NCR) or those living in the provinces just the outskirts of Metro Manila, are asking how will they be able to report for work when the lockdown is implemented.

The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) said workers living in Metro Manila’s nearby provinces will be allowed to enter NCR upon presentation of valid identification cards (IDs).

DILG Secretary Eduardo Año made the clarification following President Rodrigo Duterte’s order to suspend land, domestic air and sea travel to and from Metro Manila starting March 15 as part of community quarantine measures amid the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) threat.
Lilinawin ko lang sa mga nagtatrabaho. Kasama dito sa kautusan na papayagan ‘yung mga nagtatrabaho na pumasok provided lang na meron silang ID, merong silang magpapatunay na talagang ang work nila ay dito sa Manila. Kasi supposedly sana talagang gagayahin sana natin ‘yung ibang bansa like China na total lockdown pero syempre we also have to consider ‘yung mga nagtatrabaho na mga kababayan natin lalo na ‘yung mga ordinaryong nagtatrabaho (I just want to clear this for workers’ sake. The orders states that those living outside Metro Manila but are working here will be allowed to enter as long as they present an ID proving that their work is here. Supposedly, we are to implement a total lockdown like what was done in other countries like China, but we also have to consider our workers, especially ordinary workers),” he said in an interview.

He explains that embers of the PNP and the AFP will be setting up checkpoints in different entry and exit points n the region for inspections.
