The guidelines of the community quarantine mandates everyone to stay at home. In actuality, the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) guidelines don’t require a quarantine pass. But with the need to buy essential goods and medicines, many cities issued Quarantine passes to limit and control the number of people going out to buy essentials.

City of Manila

The capital city has two types of passes: the Quarantine Pass that has a coding system to limit the number of people going outside. And there's the "Frontliner Pass" to identify health workers and exempt them from quarantine curfew restrictions.

Quezon City

As the announcement of the community quarantine took effect, Barangay Philam District 1 posted a sample of their quarantine pass (along with the Barangay's guidelines) before distribution. 

Las Piñas

Barangay CAA’s quarantine pass is printed in paper and secured with the Barangay's dry seal. However, last April, it made news after it was reported that two residents replicated the passes and sold to other residents.

Makati

Barangay Rizal in Makati grants quarantine passes to their residents’ household heads only.

Malabon

Barangay Panghulo in Malabon also has a “Frontliner Pasabuy Pass” apart from the regular Quarantine Pass. The Pasabuy Pass allows a person to volunteer to buy for residents to limit people from going outside.

Mandaluyong

Barangay Plainview’s quarantine pass is secured with logos of the city, Barangay, and its dry seal. The pass also states the curfew, usage, and a reminder the pass isn't valid with a dry seal.

Marikina

Marikina City doesn’t issue a quarantine pass. According to a Marikina Citizens Group on Facebook, Mayor Marcelino Teodoro mentioned the city doesn’t need one because the residents are disciplined enough.

Navotas

Brgy. Bangkulasi has the usual format of a quarantine pass (control number and dry seal) but takes on a more sustainable approach as theirs are printed on a sturdier brown paper.

Parañaque

The colorful pass of Barangay Moonwalk District 2 is based on the Barangay’s official colors. At the bottom, it shows hotline numbers to call for COVID-19 related inquiries.

Pasay

Barangay 201, Zone 20 has theirs named after household heads as well. The pass can be transferrable to other members of the household as long as they bring valid ID of the household head.

Pasig

Although the Barangays in Pasig are implementing a quarantine pass, Mayor Vico Sotto strongly opposes the issuance of such passes. According to him, there’s already strict restrictions in the lockdown and the added requirement of the quarantine pass can only make it more difficult for the residents.

San Juan

The quarantine pass in Barangay Addition Hills has the same format as other quarantine passes control number and is named after the head of the household. It can be transferrable to other members as long as the member can provide valid ID of the head of the household. 

Taguig

Taguig City, on the other hand, issues a “Unified Quarantine Pass” this is to avoid conflict and confusion in checkpoints. 

Valenzuela

Like Marikina, Valenzuela doesn’t issue a quarantine pass. According to city Mayor Rex Gatchalian, issuing the pass isn’t in ECQ guidelines and can be subjected to abuse.

Quarantine passes are among the things that are part of the #NewNormal now.
