Muntinlupa City Hall visitors asked to present vaccination card or RT-PCR test
Following the consensus of Metro Manila mayors to impose restrictions regulating the movement of unvaccinated individuals, the local government of Muntinlupa will be requiring vaccination card or RT-PCR negative test from the public who will visit City Government offices.
Muntinlupa City Administrator Engr. Allan Cachuela issued a memorandum ordering security personnel in Muntinlupa City Hall and other local government offices to require visitors to present their vaccination card or a negative RT-PCR (reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction) test.
“Please be advised that everyone, including elected officials and department heads, entering the City Government of Muntinlupa (CGM) facilities must be required to present their Vaccination ID with proof that they are fully vaccinated (1st and 2nd dose) or they can present an RT –PCR test result done within two (2) weeks,” the local memorandum states.
The cost of RT-PCR test will be charged at the expense of the visiting public.
Meanwhile, employees found in violation of the order will be administratively sanctioned in accordance with the CSC rules and regulations.
The Muntinlupa City Council is set to pass an ordinance for the tightening of mobility restrictions for unvaccinated individuals.
Muntinlupa City Health Office (CHO) has recorded a significant increase in active cases following the celebration of the holidays and New Year’s Eve. From five (5) active cases last December 20, 2021, it has spiked to 295 active cases last January 3, 2021.
Muntinlupa CHO chief Dr. Juancho Bunyi urged the public to take extra caution and strictly follow the minimum public health protocols amid the increase in COVID-19 cases in the city.
Bunyi also appealed to city residents to get vaccinated as protection from the adverse effects of the virus.
