The Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases on Monday night released a list of allowed persons outside their homes during the  implementation of granular lockdowns starting on Sept. 16.

According to the guidelines for granular lockdowns, city and municipal mayors may implement granular lockdowns on individual houses where one household member has been confirmed, residential buildings, streets, blocks, puroks, subdivisions, and/or villages within their jurisdiction.

Granular lockdowns will only last for 14 days, read the guidelines.

Further, list of Authorized Persons Outside Residences under the IATF Omnibus Guidelines on the Implementation of Community Quarantine in the Philippines will not be honored in areas under granular lockdowns.

Only health care workers and non-health personnel working in hospitals, laboratories, and dialysis facilities if their institutions are unable to provide accommodation for their personnel, and uniformed personnel tasked to enforce the granular lockdown, will be allowed to move within, into, and out of the area under granular lockdown.

The following are only allowed to enter or exit their homes if they are under granular lockdown:

  • Overseas Filipino Workers bound for international travel, and those returning to their respective residences after having completed facility-based quarantine upon arrival;
  • Individuals whose home or residence are located within an area under granular lockdown may enter the said area for the sole purpose of returning to their respective homes or residences but must thereafter remain therein for the duration of the granular lockdown;
  • Individuals under exceptional circumstances such as, but not limited to, those seeking urgent medical attention as validated by the municipal/city health officer; and
  • Food and essential items that are intended for delivery within an area under granular lockdown provided that they can only be unloaded at border collection points designated by the LGU
