OR. MINDORO – “We greeted the New Year 2022 with no recorded new cases of COVID-19 and on January 2 recorded the lowest active COVID-19 cases in the past 10 months (23 active cases),” Gov. Bonz Dolor said and posted in his official Facebook account.

“But just five days later (January 7) we immediately hit 30 new cases in one day and we already had 88 active COVID-19 cases across the province. There has also been a sudden increase in admissions to hospitals due to COVID-19 and people experiencing its symptoms. Although it is still low compared to what is happening in NCR and other provinces, it is very disturbing when we do not stop,” Dolor added.

The governor reminds everyone to take extra precautions. Avoid as much as possible the holding of mass gatherings and the removal of masks in the case of associates. Maintain physical distancing and prolonged stay with associates inside a closed or air-conditioned area. Operators and drivers of public vehicles are also required to maintain the disinfection of vehicles and not allow passengers to remove face masks while on the flight.

Because Batangas province has been raised to Alert level 3 here are the New Protocols that will be implemented and agreed upon by Calapan and Batangas Ports started last January 9.

All travelers including minors (0-17), vaccinated or not and with a negative RT-PCR result or not, will not be allowed to leave Calapan Port and enter Batangas Port except for Essential travel, as well as minor and senior citizen passengers (60 and above) unless they are Essential Travelers and have complete and corresponding documents.

“Let’s not wait for us to raise the Alert Level again because it will have a big impact on our lives. I will again issue a new Executive Order that will lay down measures to prevent the re-spread of COVID-19 in our province,” the governor added.
