  • Metro Manila and 6 Other Areas Will Remain Under GCQ Until Nov 30
  • After the pre-recorded address to the nation this Tuesday morning, President Rodrigo Duterte announced that Metro Manila will remain under General Community Quarantine (GCQ) status until November 30, 2020, along with other areas.

    In his speech, Duterte said the mayors of Metro Manila wanted to retain the current quarantine classification in the region. He explained that the decision to retain the GCQ status is for everyone’s own good.

    Aside from Metro Manila, Batangas, Iloilo City, Bacolod City, Tacloban City, Iligan City, and the province of Lanao del Sur will also remain under GCQ status.

    Last week, Metro Manila mayors recommended retaining GCQ status for the rest of the year but Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque earlier said their proposal is subject to the approval of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID).

    He also admitted that the IATF is hesitant about further relaxing quarantine restrictions as it may result in a possible spike in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases.
