Camiguin requires use of face mask

CAMIGUIN (PIA)—Effective April 6, all persons here are required to use face masks at all times they are outside their homes or residences to aid in containing the coronavirus disease (COVID)-19.

Through Executive Order No. 16 of Gov. Jurdin Jesus Romualdo, people in Camiguin are required to wear their face masks especially when they are going to and fro public markets, groceries, pharmacies, and other establishments allowed to procure basic necessities and services.

Such applies to persons going to restaurants, eateries, carinderias, and snack bars to take-out meals; government offices and facilities; and their places of work.

All persons authorized to go out of their homes or residences shall only be allowed outside if they are using face masks. 

Quarantine passes and special quarantine passes shall not be effective and honored if the bearers are not wearing face masks.

The same rule applies to all persons allowed to enter the province.

To ensure compliance with the order, municipal governments are enjoined to immediately enact ordinances providing for penalties to persons within their jurisdictions who do not use face masks when outside their homes or residences. (RTP/PIA10)
