National Capital Region, isasailalim sa ECQ o Enhanced Community Quarantine mula August 6 hanggang August 20, 2021, ayon kay presidential spokesperson Harry Roque.
“Metro Manila will be placed under the strictest enhanced community quarantine classification from August 6 to 20 in light of the threat posed by the Delta coronavirus variant, Malacañang announced on Friday.”
“Mapait na desisyon ito pero ito ay para sa kabutihan ng lahat [This is a painful decision but it is for the good of the people],” presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said in a press briefing.
From July 30 to August 5, however, the region will be under general community quarantine “subject to heightened and additional restrictions,” said Roque.
“No need for panic buying because we have one week to prepare,” he said.
Under ECQ only essential trips and services are allowed, while GCQ with heightened restrictions and additional restrictions protocol bans indoor and al fresco dining.
