Workers now required to apply for Travel Pass online

With the continuous rising of the COVID-19 cases in Cebu, the dilemma of visiting offices is also evident.

However, for the workers, you can start applying for your workers’ travel pass through the WeTrace mobile app. This is in lieu to the mandate that all workers residing in the 44 towns and six (6) component cities of Cebu Province must be able to present a work travel pass (WTP) to enter Cebu City and vice-versa, starting August 10 12.

Workers can download the ‘WeTrace‘ app through Google PlayStore for Android and Apple Store for iOS. Once downloaded, you will then be able to apply online and acquire a QR code.

Your local government unit (LGU) will be goven the WeTrace platform for them to process the online application and issue the travel pass.

Governor Gwendolyn Garcua issued an advisory on August 3, with all the mayors under its jurisdiction, for the WTP to be processed online.

“Naa naman ni. Ato ni gamiton kay mao naman ni ang mas efficient nga pamaagi sa pag-contact trace,” Gov. Garcia said, revisiting the WeTrace app, which was launched in April.

Alegado said the governor required the issuance of WTP to remind workers that since they have been given the chance to return to work, “kani pud nga chance mohatag pud nila og risgo, nga makakuha sila og sakit kay exposed man sila to a lot of people.”

“Mao na ang gihangyo ni Gov nga kining mga trabahante, work-home, work-home ra gyud ang rota,” he added.

The WTP will contain:

  • The worker’s name
  • Worker’s photo
  • LGU of residence
  • Company
  • Point of origin
  • Point of destination
  • Signature of the mayor, vice-mayor, and town administrator

Alegado said this move will hopefully lessen the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
