The city government of San Carlos re-established its border health checkpoint between the Negros Oriental and Negros Occidental borders at So. Lawis, Brgy. Buluangan on Feb. 23.
The increasing COVID-19 cases in Negros Oriental prompted local officials to reinstate their guards.
The border is being manned by the Philippine National Police-San Carlos and Regional Mobile Force Battalion 6, City Health Office representatives and Barangay Buluangan officials and tanods.
PCPL Lester Dizon of the Regional Mobile Force Battalion 6 said upon entry, travelers are required to bring health certificates and valid IDs.
The health checkpoint control starts from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m.
As of yesterday, Feb. 26, San Carlos City is already COVID-19 free./WDJ
