Curfew hours in Metro Manila will be shortened to four hours, from midnight to 4 a.m., for those aged 18 to 65, one of the region's mayors said Monday.

Less than two weeks before the expiry of current quarantine classifications, restrictions are gradually being eased.

The shorter curfew hours were agreed by local chiefs during a meeting Sunday night, said Parañaque Mayor Edwin Olivarez, who heads the Metro Manila Council. Previously, Metro Manila imposed a 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew.

Pinagkasunduan po natin na ang recommendation po natin sa IATF ng MMC na iklian po ang curfew sa Metro Manila from 12 to 4 na po siya ng umaga,” he told Teleradyo.

(We approved the recommendation of the Inter-Agency Task Force and the Metro Manila Council to shorten the curfew in Metro Manila, from 12 to 4 in the morning.)

Metro Manila is currently under general community quarantine or GCQ, which is two notches away from the full easing of COVID-19 restrictions. Businesses, public transport, dine-in services, and even staycations are allowed in the capital region as of October.

Recently, Metro Manila has seen a downward trend in COVID-19 infections and is no longer the top Philippine area when it comes to having the highest number of cases.
