  • As we enter the 6th week of the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon, cases of COVID-19 have continued to rise in number, which led to the continuous reminder of the government to stay at home as an effort to control the further spread of the virus.

    To help the public identify those who are allowed to go outside during the ECQ, the Inter-Agency Task Force–Joint Task Force Corona Virus Shield (IATF-JTF CVC) has released a full and simplified list of Authorized Persons Outside Residence (APOR) through the Philippine National Police (PNP).

    In summary, those who are working for or a part of organizations and businesses dealing with basic services, daily essentials, transport of essential goods, and utilities are labeled as APOR.

    Daily Essentials

    Essential Goods
