The Department of the Interior and Local Government said workers of business establishments allowed to operate under the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) are not required to seek a travel authority from their barangays.

"Lilinawin ko lang po na para po sa mga nagtatrabaho sa mga industriyang pinapagayan ng ating batas o pinapayagan ng IATF (Inter-Agency Task Force), ang kailangan niyo lang pong ipakita ay inyong company ID or certificate of employment. 'Yun lang po, hindi po kayo kailangang humingi ng travel authority," DILG undersecretary Jonathan Malaya said at the Laging Handa public briefing.

"Ang travel authority ay para po 'yan sa mga stranded individuals. Kung kayo po ay nagtatrabaho sa isang establisyimento na pinapayagan ng IATF na mag-operate, ang kailangan niyo lang po ay inyong company ID," Malaya added.

Malaya made the statement following reports of some residents falling in long queues in Rodriguez, Rizal still asking for travel authority from the local government unit.

"Hindi po tama 'yan at kami po ay nakikipag-ugnayan na kahapon pa (Friday) sa munisipyo ng Rodriguez, Rizal para po pigilan nila ang ganoong klaseng sistema," Malaya said.

Earlier, The DILG undersecretary said travel authority is only for those stranded individuals.
