Travel Pass Guidelines for Quezon City during the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) Period

[This is a Memorandum issued by Quezon City, which is under a Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ). It is addressed to the general public AND the local police force to avoid confusion as to implementation. It is clear, concise and very helpful. Hopefully other local government units (LGUs) have a similar directive to its local enforcers, consistent with the Revised Omnibus Guidelines issued by the IATF, particularly the portion on interzonal travel. The full text of the QC Memorandum is reproduced below.]

      Hi Florito. Please do not post personal information, as this site is public. Send your information to the appropriate contact details of QC. We are not connected with the QC government. Good luck.

    How and where to get medical clearance po.? Our brgy is not issuing a medical clearance. Kasama po kasi sya sa requirement. I’ve been into some hospitals pero ang sabi po di daw po sila nag iisue.

    1. pnlpnl

      Hi Krizzia. Perhaps that question is best addressed to the QC government staff in charge of the applications. Good luck.

  5. Avatarantonio lugo jr

    nid ko pa po ba ng travel pass kung sasabay lang po ako sa kaybigan ko na may sasakyan pauwi ng probinsiya

    1. pnlpnl

      Hi Antonio. The application includes the “names of passengers”. Perhaps this should be clarified with the crew of the QC government manning the application process. Good luck.
