Join me for a walk from the Matain River to the Coffee Shop in Barrio Barretto. I had to go pick up diapers, some food, and basic provisions. You can see for yourself the conditions on the ground here in Barrio Barretto and Subic Bay.
This video was filmed on DAY 2 of the Luzon Enhanced Community Quarantine (March 18th).
***OUR STATUS HERE IN THE PHILIPPINES:
At 12:00 A.M. on Sunday, March 15th, 2020, the METRO MANILA LOCKDOWN took effect.
At 12:00 A.M. on March 17th, 2020, the LUZON ENHANCED COMMUNITY QUARANTINE took effect for the entire island of Luzon. The Luzon Quarantine is scheduled to end on April 13th, 2020.
In addition, here in Subic we are under a MANDATORY 14-Day Home Quarantine.
The Country is also under a State of Calamity for six months.
It’s a challenge to keep up with what’s going on, but the synopsis is to stay home unless you’re going out to get food, medical care, or to go to the bank.
Bars are closed, restaurants are offering takeout orders only, and several hotels have already closed. Public transportation has been suspended so there is a lot of pedestrian traffic.
Don’t worry about us. Filipina Wife #1, Forrest G., and myself are secure here in the Penthouse Suite.
