New GCQ Will Impose Strict Curfew on Metro Manila Residents

Gyms and internet cafes are not allowed.

Metro Manila will reimpose a curfew from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. during the general community quarantine, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said Wednesday at the start of the quarantine.

The curfew hours were agreed upon by Metro Manila mayors, said Roque, who is also spokesperson of the Inter-Agency Task Force on COVID-19. Mass gatherings are also limited to 10 people, including religious gatherings. Backriding is allowed if the riders live in the same address, he said.

"The unified curfew now is 8 to 5. I understand the mayors voted, the majority voted the curfew hours is 8-5," he said.

Gyms and internet cafes are not allowed. Local officials will determine restaurants' dine-in capacity.

"This is a fresh approach to COVID," Roque said.
