By Paulo DS. Papa
The Philippine National Police (PNP) in Siruma, Camarines Sur has confirmed that the municipal waters covered by the San Miguel Bay is well monitored to prevent individuals from Camarines Norte to enter the province without necessary health documents.
Border control checkpoints between the two Camarines provinces are in place to prevent the further transmissions of Covid-19.
The provincial government of Camarines Norte requires individuals from outside the province to secure letter of acceptance, health, and barangay certificates before being allowed entry to its borders.
Residents of Camarines Norte who travel by sea can easily enter Siruma, Tinambac, Calabanga and Cabusao in Camarines Sur, while residents from these towns can do the same if they want to go to Camarines Norte.
Capt. Rommel San Andres, Siruma police acting chief, told Bicol Mail that with the help of Bantay Dagat group, security along the sea route between the two provinces is closely monitored. So far no boats from Camarines Norte have been spotted entering Camarines Sur for several months already.
He said Siruma town is free of Covid-19 for the past four months, while the town remains peaceful.
