Manila Mayors Unanimously Push For GCQ Until December 31

MANILA MAYORS PUSH FOR GCQ – Members of the Metro Manila Council urged the national government to implement a GCQ in the province until the end of the year.

Currently, Metro Manila is placed under a general community quarantine. However, according to MMC chair, Parañaque Mayor Edwin Olivarez, the MMC recommended a GCQ in the Metro until December 31.

He explained that the MMC wanted to pursue a continuous strategy to avoid COVID-19 infection spikes in the province. According to an article from ABS-CBN, Olivarez stated:

“Ang recommendation ng MMC…magkaroon ng GCQ until end of the year, hanggang Dec. 31 po para magkaroon po tayo ng continuous strategy at di magkaroon ng spike all over Metro Manila”

The Metro Manila Council, composed of Mayors in the province had previously expressed their sentiments regarding the quarantine status. Still, their recommendations have not changed as they try to balance reviving the economy and preventing the spread of COVID-19.

Amid the GCQ, curfews along with other restrictions were imposed. The Metro, except Navotas, extended curfew hours to 12:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. Along with this, age restrictions for those who can go outside was lowered to 18-65 years old from the previous 21-60.

Currently, the strictest quarantine protocol in the country remains to be the ECQ or enhanced community quarantine. Meanwhile, the least strict is still the MGCQ or the modified general community quarantine.
