IATF Releases Full List Of Allowed APORs

In order to avoid any possible confusion during the two-week period of the Enhanced Community Quarantine Season 3 (ECQ 3.0), the IATF has finally released the full list of individuals they deem to be APORs or Authorized Persons Outside of Residents.

It must be remembered that the National Capital Region (NCR) has been placed under the strictest of the four community quarantine classifications from August 6 to 20, 2021 to curb the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19. In addition, Laguna, Iloilo City, and Cagayan de Oro City have also been placed under ECQ.

Take note that if you are a hatid-sundo, the requirements are here.
