    Yeah. First you give people two half days per week to do their shopping and then you let the shops close for three days of that week? Sometimes I really wonder what these people smoke.

    I agree 100% it is going to be total chaos if they extend the lockdown beyond April 13 but I can guarantee you if my house is broken into there well be no resistance from me if they want a little food and money I well gladly oblige, just don,t harm my family.

    There is a short video of Gov. Degamo (I think it's him...don't know what he looks like and wearing a mask anyway). The title is "possible downgrade of the ECQ before April 30." Of course, it's in Englayan, so I can't be sure exactly what he said. Can someone who speaks bisayan go to the FB page, watch (it's only about a minute) and let us know details what is transpiring? Thanks!

    So now there are conflicting guidelines for GCQ proffered by different sources, neither of which has an official letterhead or signature. Does anyone know where to find out what is really going on? The Provincial Government of the Philippines Facebook page is a joke with no mention of anything about GCQ.

    There is no GCQ yet. They are only recommendations from the president. Until an EO is put out by the N.O. governor and Dumaguete mayor nobody will know what is actually going to happen or what the rules will be.

    They are wanting returning residents to have the swab test certified negative before getting on the plane or ship to Negros Oriental... then they will still go into 14 days guarded quarantine on arrival (current requirement).

    I have read the swab test will cost each LSI P8, 500

    This will cost my partner and her son stranded in Manila P17,000 and then 14 days in a LGU hotel at P900 a night... or free if they go to the city gym or other location... many people and shared toilets so no thank you.

    I think many Negros Oriental LSIs will not be able to afford these swab tests before being allowed to board the plane or ship.....plus the time elapsed since swab taken then travel time means they could be infected in that time when arriving anyway. Better they do the Rapid Test here on arrival (only P1, 500) and then LGU quarantine until a negative result obtained.

    And what about all the people and staff on the plane and then every person they come in contact with once they hit the ground here? It sounds like unnecessary risk if they want to keep the numbers down and lower the risk of infection of government and airline employees. Nobody should be traveling throughout the country unless they are testing negative. I know it sucks to have to foot the bill for testing and quarantine but they are currently trying to keep this from spreading, not save anyone a few pesos. The local government knows they can't really rely on local government employees to competently enforce testing and quarantine and it is best to put the burden on Manila. Dumaguete and the surrounding area is just too small and too many people are connected to avoid heads being turned the other way for a few pesos or a few phone calls.

    The time it takes to get the swab test result which can be a week or longer means they could be infected when they go to the airport or ports even if the swab test from a week ago says negative.

    Better to do the rapid test on arrival and LGU quarantine pending the result.
