The list includes health, quarantine, or isolation facilities for close contact exposure, suspect, and probable cases, and confirmed Covid-19 patients; facilities for the health sector workers; and vaccination centers or facilities or infrastructure projects necessary for the supply, distribution, and administration of vaccines.

The city government also allows construction workers for emergency and disaster risk situations.

“Priority public infrastructure project, which shall include roads, bridges, flood control, and active transport facilities, and priority private infrastructure projects,” the guidelines read.
