‘No QR code, no entry’ policy paiiralin sa Bataan simula Oct. 1

Robie de Guzman   •   September 18, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – Simula sa Oktubre 1 ay ipatutupad na sa probinsiya ng Bataan ang ‘no QR code, no entry’ policy bilang bahagi ng pinaigting na contact tracing efforts sa gitna ng COVID-19 pandemic.

Ayon kay Bataan Governor Albert Garcia, ang QR code ang magsisilbing pass ng mga nais pumasok sa lalawigan at ipi-prisinta ito sa checkpoints o entry points sa lugar.

Sinabi ni Garcia na layunin ng sistemang ito na mapabilis ang prosesong pinagdaraanan ng mga mga pauwing overseas Filipino workers (OFW), locally-stranded individuals (LSI) at authorized persons outside of residence (APOR).

Para makakuha ng QR code, kailangang i-download ang get-pass application mula sa Google play at app store.

Mag-sign up sa app sa pamamagitan ng pagsagot sa declaration form, pindutin ang calendar at pumunta sa travel authorization section upang sagutan ang mga tanong ukol sa travel appointment.

May ilalabas itong QR code na naglalaman ng petsa ng pagbiyahe at appointment number na maaaring i-save o iprint.

Sa araw ng biyahe, dalhin ang printed na QR code kasama ang valid identification card at certificate of employment na ipapakita sa entry points papasok sa Bataan.

Ayon kay Garcia, nagsasagawa na sila ng dry run para maihanda ang mga magbabantay sa checkpoints at iba ang ahensiyang otorisadong mag-monitor ng QR code system gamit ang get-pass mobile application.

Nanawagan rin ang gubernador sa publiko na makipagtulungan at sundin ang sistema upang maiwasan ang posibleng pagkalat ng COVID-19 sa lalawigan. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Leslie Huidem)

A stranded pilot whale was rescued along the coastal waters of a private beach resort in Bagac, Bataan on Monday (June 15).

The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) rescued the short-finned whale and immediately brought her to a nearby lagoon. Upon evaluation, the pilot whale was found to be weak and under stress. It is approximately three meters in length.

“The concerned veterinarian provided her with anti-stress antibiotics and took blood samples to further determine her health condition,” the PCG said in a post.

The PCG said they will continue to monitor the whale until full recovery before releasing it back into the ocean. AAC
