OZAMIZ CITY, Misamis Occidental (PIA)–In line with the implementation of general community quarantine in Misamis Occidental, the Bureau of Plant Industry-Plant Quarantine Service in Ozamiz City has already issued 46 food lane vehicle conduct passes from March 21 to April 9 to ensure unhampered and unimpeded movement and delivery of agricultural products.

Aside from the issuance of accreditation certifications, Victor Navarez, supervising agriculturist, also conducted information dissemination at the checkpoints in Barangay Labinay and Gango to law enforcers and delivery vehicle drivers/owners regarding the implementation procedures related to food lane accreditation.

Vehicles with food lane pass or sticker will be allowed to pass the designated food lane (express lane), where drivers and their companions will be required to submit certificate of accreditation and identification documents.

They will also be subjected to thermal scanning and other Department of Health (DOH) protocols.

Vehicles without a food lane pass or sticker will pass through the normal checkpoint lane. Stickers will be released by the concerned bureau and agency of the Department of Agriculture (DA), upon approval of the application for accreditation.
