Metro Manila to be placed under GCQ

Metro Manila will now be placed under the general community quarantine (GCQ) from June 1 to 15, as President Rodrigo Duterte approved the proposal of the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases to impose GCQ in the region.

The GCQ implementation will allow more sectors to reopen as the government seeks to revive the economy. However, while mass transportation will be allowed on a limited capacity, bus and jeepney operations are still suspended.

Other parts of the country that will be on GCQ are Davao City, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, CALABARZON, Pangasinan, and Albay. The rest of the country will be under modified GCQ.
