Metro Manila’s restriction lowered to alert level 3 starting Oct 16

Metro Manila will be placed under Alert Level 3 from October 16 to 30, according to Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque.

Roque said that the new alert level approved by the IATF means that persons of all ages are now allowed to go out of their homes, with reasonable restrictions to be determined by the local government units.

Intrazonal and interzonal travels under Alert Levels 2 to 4 are also allowed, depending on the LGU of their destination.

Additionally, offices in areas under Alert Level 3 may operate at 30% on-site capacity, while those under Alert Level 2 may open at 50% capacity.

Several business activities are permitted to reopen at a maximum of 30% on-site or venue capacity, except for those under a granular lockdown.

Meanwhile, the government has put other areas in the country under modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) and general community quarantine (GCQ) with heightened restrictions starting October 16 until the end of the month.
