The province has stepped up its game to observe social distancing and proper sanitation.

While the battle against COVID-19 still seems far from over, different places in Luzon are continuously doubling their efforts to keep their residents safe and healthy. The enhanced community quaratine (ECQ) has also been extended in high-risk areas, and Batangas is one of the many places that was classified as such. Because of this, the province will still be placed under ECQ until May 15, 2020 until further notice.

Within the province, multiple guidelines have also been implemented to limit the movement of people, specifically in highly susceptible areas like every Batangas public market. These measures include the release of color-coded quarantine passes and scheduled disinfection days of public markets. Below are the details on how every Batangas public market is kept safe for the public.

Color-Coded Quarantine Passes for Market Day

In the past, Batangas released color-coded quarantine passes from the Department of Interior and Local Government and Batangas City Government. This is to strictly observe social distancing among the market-goers. The use of quarantine passes was put into effect on April 15, 2020, but with the easing of the quarantine status, this system has been dropped in some parts of Batangas.

The passes were available in 7 different colors, with each color determining the day of the week a quarantine pass holder can leave his or her home to buy essentials. These were following colors of the quarantine passes and their corresponding schedules:

1. Orange - Monday, 5:00 AM to 8:00 PM
2. Yellow - Tuesday, 5:00 AM to 8:00 PM
3. Green - Wednesday, 5:00 AM to 8:00 PM
4. Blue - Thursday, 5:00 AM to 8:00 PM
5. Red - Friday, 5:00 AM to 8:00 PM
6. Purple - Saturday, 5:00 AM to 8:00 PM
7. Pink - Sunday, 5:00 AM to 8:00 PM

Quarantine passes were checked upon entry to see if the holders are obeying their given market day schedule.

Disinfection of Public Markets

All public markets also have scheduled disinfection days. The areas are being disinfected with the help of every barangay’s fire department. Other local government units in the province also assign sanitary inspectors to monitor the disinfections.
