The Cebu Port Authority (CPA) said cargo operations continue to be unimpeded despite Cebu City’s reversion to enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).

Travel and movement of locally-stranded individuals in Cebu domestic base port (Piers 1 to 4), however, are temporarily suspended, CPA said in a statement.

Cebu City has been placed back under ECQ from July 1 to 15 due to its high number of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases.

CPA on July 5 performed misting and disinfection operations over the entire stretch of Cebu Domestic Port along Quezon Boulevard from Port Gates 1 to 7 to prevent spread of COVID-19.

In addition, CPA regularly disinfects all offices, shuttle buses and areas inside port terminals like comfort rooms, boarding gates, screening stations and other areas where people usually stay.

Disinfection and misting of the port operational area within secondary gates is also scheduled this week.

As part of the modified port protocols for COVID-19, all persons entering the port area are required to wear mask at all times and strictly comply with the temperature check and social distancing measures.

Handwashing stations are installed within port areas to encourage regular hand hygiene.
