Travelers from Bohol and Negros Provinces going to Cebu from June 14 to July 24 are required to present negative RT-PCR or antigen tests.

Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia issued Executive Order No. 24 detailing additional requirements for travelers from these areas due to the rising cases of the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) there.

The RT-PCR test must have been taken within 72 hours before the trip, while the rapid antigen test must have been done within 48 hours before traveling.

Garcia said the requirement was made as added precuation after the number of Covid-19 cases rose in Bohol and Negros Oriental.

“Based on the data received from the Department of Health (DOH), there has been a steady rise in COVID-19 cases in the Province of Bohol and the Province of Negros Oriental,” said the governor in her EO.

The number of active Covid-19 cases in Bohol province has reached 1,000.
