The main priority of the Subic and Clark government is to manage the spread of COVID-19 Delta variants among residents. Thus, persons below 18 and above 65 years old from general community quarantine (GCQ) to modified general community quarantine (MGCQ) areas could enter the Subic Bay Freeport Zone for exercise activities as long as they present negative RT-PCR test results. Also, tourism is allowed in Clark Freeport but for fully vaccinated individuals only.

On the other hand, Pampanga will remain under MGCQ until the end of August. Lastly, a hospital in Subic has limited its patient capacity due to the Delta threat.


Lockdown News


Subic and Pampanga government heightens safety protocols.

The Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) clarified that persons under 18 years old and above 65 could enter the Subic Bay Freeport Zone for exercises or sports activities as long as they present negative RT-PCR test results upon entrance [1].

Meanwhile, Pampanga Governor signed Executive Order No. 17 A-2021 which extends the implementation of Pampanga’s modified general community quarantine (MGCQ) status until the end of August. The extension of Pampanga’s MGCQ status is part of the LGU’s measures to lessen the spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant in the area [2].



Travel Updates


Fully vaccinated tourists can visit Clark Freeport.

The Clark Development Corp. (CDC) stated in an advisory last August 15 that only fully vaccinated visitors can enter the Clark Freeport Zone for leisure travels. In addition to this, a negative RT-PCR test result must be presented by those coming from areas under strict quarantine levels. Exemptions to the vaccination card requirement are authorized persons outside of residence (APOR).

COVID-19 control points were set up at the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway to monitor the entrance of tourists. While within Clark Freeport, visitors are urged to follow mandatory health and safety protocols [3].


Health News


Subic Rural Health Unit limits the number of patients per day.

To reduce the risk of spreading the COVID-19 Delta variant, the Rural Health Unit (RHU) in Subic reduced its patient capacity to only a maximum of 100 per day. Exemptions to this quota are emergency cases that need to be addressed immediately. As for non-emergency consultations, RHU recommends using the telemedicine hotline or RHU Facebook account for online consultations [4].
