DoLE recommends no quarantine for OFWs from green list countries

DFA.GOV.PH

THE LABOR department has recommended to remove the quarantine period for returning overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) from countries under the green list who will test negative for coronavirus upon arrival.

The Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE) also suggested to cut the quarantine period to five days for OFWs coming from yellow list countries who will test negative for coronavirus.

“I am very confident that the President will approve the recommendation,” Labor Secretary Silvestre H. Bello III said in a news briefing on Wednesday.

On Oct. 8, the inter-agency task force managing the pandemic reduced the mandatory facility-based quarantine period for inbound travelers from countries with low to medium coronavirus infections or those under the green and yellow lists.

Presidential Spokesperson Herminio “Harry” L. Roque, Jr. announced that fully vaccinated inbound passengers are now only required to undergo a five-day facility-based quarantine and another five days at their respective homes. Those unvaccinated will undergo a seven-day facility quarantine and another seven days at home.

The previous requirement was a 10 to 14-day facility quarantine.

All countries and territories are included in the green and yellow lists, except for British territory Bermuda, which is under the red list. — Bianca Angelica D. Anago
