He, however, clarified the checkingprocedure won’t be less stringent so as not to hamper the smooth passage ofgoods, particularly perishable goods. At checkpoints, the pillions would betasked to get down the motorcycle, said Police Colonel Paul Kenneth Lucas, IPPOdirector. FOODPASS As to the transport of goods, Lucassaid couriers must present at the checkpoints a “food pass” from the Departmentof Agriculture (DA) director of the region where the couriers are based. Social distancing means increasing thephysical space between people. It is being enforced under the enhancedcommunity quarantine as a way to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease2019 (COVID-19). There is no social distancing betweenthe motorcycle driver and the pillion, he explained. According to Lucas, the World HealthOrganization advocates social distancing because the COVID-19 virus istransmitted via droplets released when someone with the disease coughs orsneezes.
