Movement of people in Clark limited

THE Clark Development Corporation (CDC) has issued guidelines in limiting people’s movement as part of the measures under the Enhanced Community Quarantine  amid the threat of COVID-19.

Effective March 18, only employees in specific business enterprises will be allowed to and from the Freeport. These include workers in the food sector (groceries, supermarkets, duty free shops, convenience stores), gasoline stations, clinics and hospitals, drug stores, banks, payment and remittance centers, waste management (garbage collection), utility companies (power, water, telcos), logistics, grounds maintenance (street sweeping, grass cutting), BPOs and manufacturing.

Hotels will be limited to serving current guests, with no further bookings, except where locators allowed to operate would opt to use the hotels as temporary billeting for their employees.

Restaurants will be allowed to prepare food only for delivery. There can be no sit downs or dine ins.

Essential CDC offices will remain open. Public Safety, Engineering, and Health Services will continue to operate. Business processes like permit applications shall be made online or via the internet.

In a bid to discourage personal appearances for transactions and processing of documents in CDC offices, the state-owned firm is encouraging locators and stakeholders to use the online services of CDC and other forms of communication such as telephones, email, and teleconferences.

Only the Mabalacat and Friendship Gates and the Clark North and Clark South entry and exit points will be opened. The Sapang bato and Don Juico Gates will be closed.

Thermal scanning will be conducted at all entry points.
