Governor Florencio T. MIraflores issued Executive Order No. 36, Series of 2020 issued on August 28, 2020 that removes the RT-PCR (Swab Test) requirements for locally stranded individuals (LSIs) coming home to Aklan. The non-imposition of the swab test requirements is in compliance with the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) memorandum advising local government units to remove such requirements.
Due to the rising cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the country, the national government has implemented community quarantines to limit the movement of the people in order to stop the spread of the pandemic.
However, this also resulted in many residents of Lezo becoming stranded from other provinces as well as those who are working abroad. Because of this, the national government has issued guidelines to regulate the going home of repatriated overseas Filipino workers (ROFWs) and locally stranded individuals (LSI).
