Pres. Duterte to Mayor Richard Gomez: No reason not to accept returning residents

The President of the Republic in his most recent public address that he does not object with Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez’s policy over returning residents, but insisted they should be allowed to return home.

“I don’t have any quarrel with Richard Gomez. He was the one who said that he’s not going to accept anybody from entering or leaving the place. Okay man lang ‘yan. It’s part of, maybe the vigilance that a person knows in his heart on how to do it,” he said in Malacanang.

Duterte added, “But you know there are also constitutional issues that are involved. Those are sacred ones. For those who are not really pronounced to be infected, positive, there’s no reason why you should not accept them, especially those returning to their homes from doing work abroad. Kawawa naman kasi.”

A few days ago the Ormoc mayor expressed frustration over the seemed lack of proper coordination by the national government on returning residents.
“We have no problem accepting all these balikbayan people. Of course, we want them back in our city. But hindi naman 'to leisure, hindi naman 'to pasyal eh. You know, we are in a pandemic, so we really have to be very, very careful,” Gomez said on ANC's Headstart.
“It is important for us to receive all these people documented so we will know where they are coming from, if they've been tested, if they had been quarantined,” he added.
