BHERTs are responsible for tracking of persons with a history of foreign travel, identification of persons under monitoring and persons under investigation. Mayor Evelio Leonardia recently released guidelines requiring LSIs to coordinate with their barangay councils prior to going home, and that they must sign a document indicating that they agree to follow protocols.
