In any form of quarantine, the logistics sector is allowed to operate at full capacity, according to the latest omnibus guidelines on the implementation of community quarantines.

Within and across areas placed under any form of community quarantine, movement of all types of cargoes via land, air, and sea should remain unhampered. Likewise, workers in the logistics sector, such as cargo, trucking, courier delivery and port operations, should be allowed to transit across areas placed under any form of community quarantine.

All local government units (LGU) are directed to strictly abide by this national policy, provided that only up to five personnel may operate cargo and delivery vehicles by land, with or without load.

LGUs and local health units are also enjoined not to issue orders contrary to or inconsistent with said directive.
