‘No RT-PCR tests for fully vaxxed Capiznons’

ROXAS CITY – Fully vaccinated Capiz residents outside of Western Visayas do not need to show RT-PCR tests when entering the province, Governor Esteban Evan Contreras said.

The fully vaccinated Capiznons only need to get their vaccine certification through vaxcert.doh.gov.ph and a travel coordination permit issued by spass.ph, the governor said in his recent executive order signed on October 18.

For unvaccinated individuals returning to the province, they need to have a 72-hour RT-PCR negative result and must have a travel coordination permit issued by spass.ph.

“Kaluluoy man sila. Maybe, with the vaccination drive and vaccination cards, mapahapos naton para sa mga fully vaccinated nga returning Capiznons as an incentive for them,” Contreras said in an October 16 interview.

At the time of the interview, the provincial government was appealing to the Regional Inter-Agency Task Force (RIATF) to revert Capiz to the general community quarantine status from GCQ with heightened restrictions.

The national IATF has classified Capiz under GCQ status which took effect from October 18 to 31.*
