ILIGAN CITY —– The Land Transportation Office (LTO) in Iligan City resumed office on Wednesday (May 13) after almost two months of being closed due to the implementation of enhanced community quarantine.
Iligan LTO Chief Monadato Mangadang said their office will strictly enforce public health protocols set by the Department of Health (DOH) : mandatory wearing of face masks, social distancing, installation of hand wash area at the gate, foot bath and thermal gun scanner.
At the entrance, a client is required to fill-up form with his name, address, contact number, person to be contacted in case of emergency, office to visit and the kind of transaction he has to do inside, for contact tracing purposes.
The agency is also limiting the number of clients to be served per day as per directive from the central office.
“We are advised to cater to not more than the 50% of the normal number of clients we usually cater. Before the pandemic, we could cater 300 to 500 clients a day,” Mangadang said.
The LTO will not require the submission of expired emission test certification issued last March because of the closure of the LTO due to the implementation of community quarantine. (Sir, ang pasabot ani kay modawat ra ang LTO og expired nga emission test result basta kat atong March nila nakuha)
“The validity period of emission “ (is this a quote? If yes, who said it? Or is this a sub-topic? Kon sub-topic ayaw butangi quotation marks, instead just write it in bold letters) ” (YES, quote ni siya)
At present, there are no LTO-accredited
The nearest accredited emission testing centers are in Marawi City, Ozamiz City and Cagayan de Oro City.
However, because of the strict community quarantine, the most accessible testing centers at the moment is in Cagayan de Oro City and Marawi City according to Mangadang.
