Three local government units (LGUs) in Metro Manila have not yet passed the ordinance that restricts mobility of the unvaccinated individuals, according to the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).

In a televised press briefing on Wednesday, Interior Undersecretary Jonathan E. Malaya said the respective city councils of Navotas, Makati, and Pasig are still in the process of issuing such ordinance.  

“We expect in the next few days the said ordinances will be passed since the Metro Manila Mayors have a unanimous decision to push for mobility restrictions against the unvaccinated  in consonance with the directive of the President,” Malaya said. 

He said the other 14 LGUs in the National Capital Region (NCR) already passed such an ordinance in an effort “protect” the unvaccinated from novel coronavirus disease (Covid-19) infection. 

The measure also aims to encourage the public to avail of the government’s free Covid-19 jabs. 

Malaya said LGUs outside of NCR are also expected to follow suit after the League of Provinces of the Philippines also passed a resolution encouraging its members to pass ordinance, which will also limit the movement of unvaccinated individuals.
