Local Government Unit of Caloocan City to Impose Longer Curfew Hours Starting March 10 (Wednesday)
The local government unit of Caloocan is set to implement longer curfew hours starting March 10, 2021 (Wednesday).
The Caloocan City government has decided to reimpose and prolong the curfew hours as a response to the soaring cases of the coronavirus disease. Quarantine passes will be also required in the town.
Caloocan City Mayor Oscar Malapitan said that health workers, frontliners, food delivery employees and workers are exempted from the curfew hours. The employees just have to present their company ID in case of apprehension.
Malapitan signed the executive order 010-2021 adjusting the curfew hours from 12:00 am – 3:00 am to 10:00 pm – 4:00 am. He also imposed lockdown in several houses and not the entire barangay.
“Merong kaming inilbas kagabi, paiigtingin namin ‘yung quarantine pass, hihigpitan namin ng konti paglabas ng tao, saka ‘yung curfew muli ibinalik ko sa 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.,” Malapitan said.
The city mayor based the order at the study conducted by the OCTA Research group, which expects 5, 000 to 6, 000 new COVID-19 cases daily before the month of March ends. Meanwhile, the LGU will still study if they will shut down the public market for disinfection.
“Ireraise ko rin yun, titingnan namin kung pwede naming i-consider,” Malapitan added.
