THE Navotas City government has become even more protective to its constituents amid the continued decline in COVID-19 cases after it imposed restrictions for incoming travelers from areas outside National Capital Region Plus.

The restriction applies to essential and non-essential travels of individuals coming from places outside Metro Manila, Rizal, Bulacan, Cavite, and Laguna.

Mayor Toby Tiangco said those who will visit Navotas need to register at and submit documents such as health declaration or medical certificate from the health office of their place of origin, indicating that the visitors are not COVID patients, suspected or probable cases.

They also need to submit a negative RT-PCR swab test result, a barangay certificate stating that they’re not required to undergo quarantine or have already completed it, and the full address of their destination in Navotas.

According to OCTA Research, Navotas recorded the least number of new cases per day on June 25 – July 1 among Metro Manila cities.

Cong. Tiangco gets vaccinated

Cong. John Rey Tiangco got his first dose of Moderna vaccine at Tangos National High School as part of the A4 Priority Group. “I’m encouraging our constituents to get vaccinated because this will protect us from this deadly disease.”

Navotas has 88.2% COVID vaccine utilization rate. As of July 2, 2021 it has administered a total of 117,006 doses.: 87,742 for first doses and 29,264 for second doses.

PCUP Mini-Caravan to kick off again

The mini-caravan of the Presidential Commission for the Urban Poor will once again kick off to deliver integrated services for the urban poor communities across the country that will start this month.

The caravan is one of the three priority programs launched by PCUP Chairman and CEO Alvin Feliciano in which services of various government agencies and private sectors are brought closer to the poor communities to provide assistance and access to key government programs.

According to data released by the commission, this year’s PCUP Mini Caravan will tour 33 cities and provinces from Metro Manila to Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao and different resettlement sites.

Chairman Feliciano was confident that the result of the program will be successful despite the limitations and restrictions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Even though we are facing a pandemic, I am fully confident that the re-launch of our mini-caravan will be as successful as it was before the pandemic.”

“In times like these, Filipinos need the care of the government and through the PCUP, it is the government that will directly go to the communities that are in dire need of help to deliver basic programs and services,” the PCUP head said.
