Gov’t plans to ease pandemic border controls

2022-9-22

The government’s pandemic task force is set to discuss next month further easing of COVID-19 policies, this time on border controls, in response to the order of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. to further open the economy.

The officer in charge of the Department of Health (DOH), on Tuesday, said new policies and recommendations to be presented by the DOH in the next Inter-Agency Task Force on the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) meeting in the next two weeks are border restrictions as well as protocols on testing and isolation.

The officer also noted that the government is now looking to improve the One Health Pass, following complaints from travelers that they are being inconvenienced by this screening system. Visitors and Filipino nationals entering the country are required to present their One Health Pass.
