Default Barangay Pass Needed To Go Outside?

So yesterday, out of sheer boredom mixed with cabin fever, I decided to go for a walk around town (barangay). While I was hanging out, some dude told me I needed some kind of quarantine pass from the local barangay in order for me to be outside along with only one person may be outside from your house hold at any given time thing. Is this true and all you people have gotten that pass?

We have a quarantine pass (one per house) but can walk around the barangay without it. But to leave the barangay they check for the pass and ID to leave the barangay. The grocery stores also check ID's, quarantine pass, and temperature to go inside (so I hear... I do not have a pass ha ha)

Not sure where you are living or sorry to say what planet you are living on but if you take the time to read the posts or simply watch the news you will be better informed. If you are 60 or older you are property bound in the Philippines, no excuses or passes. Yes one pass per household for local shopping and if you dare to go further afield then you need a very good excuse to get a travel pass from your local Municipal Hall and take your fanciest clothes and most expensive car as there appears to be the proverbial class divide by those that suddenly think they have power. Only an observation as you will see in another post..........
Good luck and wear your surgical mask while out and about with your newly acquired pass.

Cheers, Steve.

It varies, just like every other rule here.

I have a pass but never used it until today, drove through the checkpoints, was never asked for it, the people at the check points were the poster children for how NOT to practice social distancing and mask usage.
I suspect had my windows not been tinted and they say that it was a foreigner driving I might have had to give up a blue wallet sized "pass" to continue.

Lots of people walking around in small groups, a construction site had people working at it. Hand wash temperature check and then use alcohol sanitizer at the 7-11., the cashier was behind a plastic screen, next store over business as usual. The rules are all over the map,

Others, in different areas, have said that they get asked every few kms for their pass and records are kept of how often you have used it and you can be denied passage if you went out yesterday.



It is more fun in the Philippines.

Whiskey Mike, I also have the barangay pass and found out today that it's only going to get much harder to get out even with this pass, now they're going to limit which day each barangay can shop for that limited two hour window and because of the extension we are getting a new pass soon.

We have barangay representative come by in the trike with announcements but nobody can understand what they are saying so I'll have to find out the hard way what he said.

Kids out after I think 6 pm are warned first to get back in the house and off the streets and if caught outside their neighborhood they are brought to the barangay and it's a 1000 pesos fine, one of the family members had another run and get him cigarettes and the child was arrested, the In-law that had him run for cigarettes wouldn't pay the fine either so his mother had to borrow the money in order to get him out.

Oh man, that is wrong. I sent an uncle for rum and was willing to pay his fine, if he was caught. But... since he was buying from the barangay kagawad (and paying double the price), I figured he was pretty safe ha ha.

Thanks fellas for the replies. Yeah, to be honest I get tired of hearing about this virus. And I'm a healthcare worker close to 30 years now lol 👍 I don't watch the news that much anymore. Too much Covid-19 this and that.

Same here. No pass. I went to the barangay office to get my pass, but they were out for lunch. After a half and hour, I took off. I'll try again later.
