Someone should tell our local barangay.

We just got issued new passes this morning with our picture on them. Still limited to going out on Tues/Thur/Sat only for food and essential goods.

Only difference is they say this pass is now good to go to the larger city on those three days, no need for travel pass from mayor.

Okay I'll check into this because on the days I am allowed out M - W - F the next city only allows outsiders in on Tues and Thursdays. Heck I'll wait until Monday but what I read was that the Municipality pass will still be needed when traveling from other cities in the same region.

Hi. Don't build up your hopes too much. Antipolo had GCQ all May with no difference from ECQ. People are still asked for Barangay passes at malls, Wilcon etc.

All of the latest news that I've read concerns Metro Manila and it will be interesting to see how their GCQ effects non-Metro Manila districts. I just can't see Barangays etc loosening their grip on power/control over sections under their control.
Of course at nearly 70 I am deemed to be housebound to "prevent the spread of infections". It is good to know that the policy makers deem over 60's as infectious.

It will be extremely interesting to discover what brilliant excuses the policy makers come up with to continue house arrest of over 60's once kids start physically attending school; on school premises, or at designated educational locations.

Of course one has to ask the question, "If over 60's or pregnant women can't leave their homes; does this mean that everybody LIVING with an over 60, pregnant women, child, or person who has health issues are also banned from leaving their home?"
If that is the case, then 90% of the population should be on house detention.
There's really no difference if an over 60 etc mingles with people at a mall etc or mingles at home with people who have been to a mall.

One would hope that over 60's have more intelligence than children and therefore would be keenly aware of and abide by health guidelines than kids.
My take on this may seem extreme, but if the population, above the age of responsibility, does not understand the health guidelines by now then they never will. Instead of hours long televised briefings they should simply say that the population is free to move within the country providing that they wear face masks and try to maintain some physical distancing. If they refuse to wear face masks then they get fined and they then have to pay for any medical covid 19 assistance themselves. The authorities should allow people to make their own decisions with regard to their own risk assessment instead of lumping everyone together.

I hope it is not the case that the majority of people survived the covid 19 pandemic; but unfortunately most of the survivors succumbed to bankruptcy and starvation.

John

It's my understanding that we are let out under MGCQ, assuming the tin gods at the end of the road agree

They won't. Asawa tells me that they lifted the liquer ban and had to reinstate it 3 days later because these fools were drinking themselves stupid and killing each other along with doing other lesser drunken acts. As she states "these fools have no disipline" and as I have observed she is correct in that most do some very juvenile things.

Yeah, here in Iloilo they relaxed the liquor ban twice. The 1st time lasted less than 18 hours. The 2nd time was 3 or 4 days (I got mine bought!). The governor just announced that the ban will be lifted again when we transition into the new rules 1JUN... we shall see how it goes ha ha

I'm trying my best to understand this liquor ban but it makes no sense to me at all.... It only creates a black market for the cheap Brandy and higher prices I might add and no beer.

I'm pretty sure the booze will be sold on June 1st and from what others here have shared I guess I'd better stock up and it'll be another shortage and long wait for beer.

wife was told this morning by the Barangay that next month we can get a travel pass which is designated for our car not the people in it ! it will allow us to travel to Santa Rosa immigration,S&R Nuvali etc but its all down to what the mayor agrees to !
we have a way of getting to S&R Nuvali but it does not include me as yet !
our Barangay checkpoints have got more stricter this week ! but as is normal the rules do not apply to certain people .
