Muntinlupa City Police Station has installed checkpoints in city boundaries while the local government has limited its physical transactions as Metro Manila shifts back to Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine starting August 4.

Public Information Officer Tez Navarro said Muntinlupa Police has installed checkpoints in city boundaries while quarantine passes will be required again to limit movement.

Navarro noted that old quarantine passes are still valid and can be used by residents in checkpoints while the City Council is yet to convene for the final quarantine guidelines. Those who will travel to work can still use their company identification cards or certificate of employment in checkpoints.

Checkpoints in Muntinlupa City are situated in Tunasan, Muntinlupa – San Pedro, Laguna, Susana Heights SLEX Toll, and Filinvest Alabang. The local police shall also put checkpoints in barangay boundaries to restrict non-essential inter-zonal travel.

Muntinlupa City Council will hold a Special Session on Wednesday to discuss amendments on the implementation of curfew hours, reinstatement of liquor ban, issuance of quarantine passes, and mandatory use of face mask.

Some offices in Muntinlupa LGU have also imposed limited physical operations starting August 4. Muntinlupa Public Employment Service Office temporarily suspended processing of applications from walk-in applicants. PESO announced that it will only cater online requests for referral to companies and will continue to post job vacancies in their Facebook Page.

Muntinlupa Scholarship Program has also suspended its Drop Box applications following the placement of Metro Manila back to MECQ. MSP will only accept email applications during the period.

Taxpayers in the city can also process their transaction online. Muntinlupa Business Permits and Licensing Office and Muntinlupa City Assessor’s Office have announced electronic transactions for the processing of request for quarterly local business tax assessment, real property tax order of payment, copy of Assessor’s certification, among others, to limit physical transactions.

Meanwhile, the local government will continue to enforce market schedule regulating the operations of Alabang Public Market. The implementation of the market schedule aims to limit interactions in public places which are hotspots for the transmission of COVID-19.

District 1 and non-Muntinlupa residents are scheduled on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. While District 2 residents can buy groceries in Alabang Public Market on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Monday is designated for disinfection and sanitation of stalls and other areas of the market.

Further, tricycles will be allowed to operate in Muntinlupa despite restriction of public transportation during MECQ.

Tricycle drivers can only transport frontliners, workers of industries allowed to operate during MECQ, and heads of households buying essential goods. Only one passenger per tricycle will be allowed with an exemption for emergency cases with a fare of P25.00 per trip. 

Minimum health protocols will still be followed including installation of transparent plastic sheet barriers, disinfection of tricycles at least twice a day, provision of alcohol-based sanitizers, and implementation of “no face mask, no ride” policy.

The odd-even scheme for tricycles will continue to be implemented where Tricycle Regulatory Unit (TRU) numbers ending in odd numbers will be allowed to operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, while those with even number can operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

To augment transportation, the local government will continue to offer “libreng sakay” to commuters.

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi continues to urge city residents to stay at home and follow health protocols such as frequent hand-washing, physical distancing, wearing of face masks, proper cough etiquette, and other precautionary measures.

As of August 3, Muntinlupa City has 1,634 confirmed cases with 803 recoveries, 756 active cases, 75 reported deaths, 705 suspect cases, and 802 probable cases.
