This week’s quarantine updates in Negros Occidental: the provincial government shortened curfew hours, the sea travel suspension between Panay Island and Negros Occidental has been lifted, and a hospital in Bacolod temporarily suspends COVID-19 admissions due to the COVID-19 surge.

Quarantine Updates: Shorten curfew hours in Negros Occidental

Negros Occidental’s provincial government has set new curfew hours while remaining under modified general community quarantine (MGCQ). The new curfew hours are set from 9:00 PM to 4:00 PM until the end of the month [1]. The previous curfew hours in Negros Occidental started from 8:00 PM.

All residents must stay indoors unless they need emergency services, have to go to work, are personnel in cargo vehicles, or are authorized persons outside their residence. Meanwhile, Bacolod City maintains its curfew hours from 11:00 to 4:00 AM.

Travel News: Sea trips to Iloilo resumes

The Regional Inter-Agency Task Force (RIATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases lifted the temporary sea travel moratorium between Iloilo and Negros. The sea trips at Dumangas Port and Iloilo City to and from Bacolod City resumed last June 1, 2021. Furthermore, Regional Director Juan Jovianie Ingeniero, chair of the RIATF, reminded travelers to observe minimum public health standards and adhere to the travel requirements before traveling [2].

Health News: CLMMRH ceases to accept COVID-19 patients until further notice

Bacolod City’s regional hospital will no longer accept admissions of COVID-19 patients since its healthcare facility has reached maximum capacity. Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital (CLMMRH) released an advisory last May 30, 2021, that COVID-19 admissions are put to halt until further notice. On the other hand, they will accept COVID-19 patients with extreme emergency cases.

Furthermore, Medical Center Chief Dr. Julius Drilon said that they would resume admissions of COVID-19 patients once there are available beds in the regional hospital [3].
