PH Revised Coverage of the Enhance Community Quarantine

MANILA — Parts of the Philippines on Friday, May 1, are shifted to a general quarantine as the government eased restrictions even as the coronavirus pandemic persists.

Only Metro Manila and 8 other areas will remain under lockdown until May 15 as studies show that these places were at high-risk of coronavirus outbreak.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the following areas will remain under ECQ until May 15:

  • Metro Manila
  • Central Luzon except for Aurora
  • Southern Tagalog Region (CALABARZON)
  • Pangasinan
  • Benguet
  • Iloilo including Iloilo City
  • Cebu
  • Bacolod City
  • Davao City

Other parts of the country meanwhile will begin the shift to a “new normal” or general community quarantine.

Below is the signed copy of President Duterte’s executive order on the changes in community quarantine protocols.
