Metro Manila, nearby provinces reverted to GCQ starting August 19

After a two-week timeout for medical frontliners, president Rodrigo Duterte on Monday night announced that quarantine restrictions in Metro Manila, Cavite, Bulacan, Laguna, and Rizal will be eased again to General Community Quarantine (GCQ) starting August 19 until August 31.

According to presidential spokesperson Harry Roque, this means that nearly all industries in the areas will be allowed to reopen, restaurants will be allowed to resume dine-in operations, while religious activities may resume at 30 per cent capacity.

Other areas that are also under GCQ are Nueva Ecija, Batangas, and Quezon in Luzon; and Iloilo City, Cebu City, Lapu Lapu City, Mandaue City, Talisay City, and the municipalities of Minglanilla and Consolacion in Cebu province in the Visayas.
