Locally stranded individuals are temporarily banned from returning to Western Visayas and Caraga to contain the coronavirus pandemic, an official said Monday. 

Local authorities requested the 2 regions to be included in the travel ban that initially covered Eastern Visayas, said Joint Task Force COVID Shield Commander Lt. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar. 

"Aside from Region 8 po na suspended ang ating pag-issue ng travel authority dahil sa request ng mga chief executive nila, isinama na rin doon ang Region 6 at Caraga sa mga lugar kung saan ay temporarily suspended muna itong mga locally stranded individuals na pupunta," he told ABS-CBN's TeleRadyo.
