Stranded individuals go back home

People wait to go back to their provinces on Friday after being stranded in Metro Manila due to quarantine measures put in place to curb the spread of COVID-19. A total of 146 individuals were taken home for free on Friday through the Balik-Probinsya program and the efforts of the Office of the Vice President, Redemptorist Church National Shrine of Our Mother of Perpetual Help in Baclaran, and local government units. Besides disinfection procedures and temperature checks, passengers were required to present a medical certificate and travel authority issued by the Philippine National Police and LGUs of their respective towns and provinces.
