NCRPO Randomly Inspects Quarantine Hotels in Metro Manila

In line with its commitment to ensure that quarantine protocols and restrictions set to curb the ballooning number of those infected by covid 19 disease, NCRPO conducts random inspection of quarantine hotels in Metro Manila.

Its current Chief PMGEN VICENTE D DANAO JR ordered for a stricter measure to guarantee compliance from these establishments following an order from DILG Secretary Eduardo Año for the PNP to conduct random and surprise inspection on quarantine hotels, as well as other business establishments after Metro Manila was placed under Alert Level 3 restrictions.

Moreover, amid the sudden surge in the recorded number of positive cases and the controversy brought by a returning Filipino from the United States who allegedly skipped mandatory quarantine and even attended a party with friends, NCRPO wanted to ensure compliance with the rules of the Inter-Agency Task Force on the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-MEID) to uphold public safety.

“We wanted to ensure that pertinent laws, issuance, protocols and other policies pertaining to covid 19 control and prevention were duly implemented and strictly observed by the populace. This is to guarantee public safety and curb the increasing number of those who were infected especially with the emergence of new covid 19 variants which proves to be more contagious and deadly than before.” Said PMGEN DANAO JR.

For the past few days, different police districts of NCRPO randomly deploys its personnel to check and inspect quarantine hotels in their areas of responsibility and no major violation was noted so far. The inspection will be regularly be undertaken to ensure the strict adherence on the rules and protocols. ###
