Cebu (CNN Philippines, October 25) — Cebu City has further eased restrictions for fully vaccinated travelers, saying it is part of the policy to incentivize inoculation against COVID-19.

The city government said Monday those fully vaccinated can now enter the city without needing to present negative COVID-19 test results. However, those below 18 years old must be accompanied by their fully vaccinated guardians and parents at all times.

The loosening of restrictions comes after Cebu province and Cebu City were placed under Alert Level 2 beginning Oct. 2.

Cinemas were allowed to accommodate fully vaccinated patrons but were limited to 50 % capacity. Curfew has also been shortened from 11:30 p.m. to 4 a.m., from the previous 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.

City officials warned they would be strict in checking vaccination cards for authenticity, and those caught with fake cards will be charged.

The cards should have QR codes for easy verification. But for those cards without QR codes, the city will require a certification from the traveler’s local health unit.
