Quezon City to Shorten Curfew Hours
As we wait for the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF)'s official announcement on the state of Luzon after the general community quarantine (GCQ) from June 1 to 15, LGUs have been releasing guidelines on how to proceed with the "new normal" in order to prevent further spread of the COVID-19 virus.
In a memorandum released on June 14, the Quezon City local government listed down a few adjustments they'll be making to quarantine rules, including shortened curfew hours that start at 10 p.m. instead of 8. (Those who are out due to work, travel (sea/air), and emergencies will still be excempted.)
Public transportation and dining in at restaurants will also be allowed, granted that companies, establishments, and patrons abide by the strict physical distancing and hygiene rules enforced by the DOTr, DTI, and other relevant government agencies.
Read the official memorandum here:
As of June 13, there are currently a total number of 947 active COVID-19 cases in Quezon City, and 1,291 recoveries. The death toll is at 207.
And while the city is easing restrictions in most barangays, certain areas were placed under "special concern lockdown" following a surge in infections during the GCQ. The areas are: Sitio Militar in Barangay Toro, Calle 29 in Barangay Libis, and Kaingin Bukid in Barangay Apolonio Samson, as well as 138 Ermin Garcia St. and 52 Imperial St.
