Metro Mayors to Implement New Unified Curfew Hours for MECQ Starting Tomorrow
The Metro Manila Council have agreed to impose new curfew hours across the metropolis starting tomorrow as the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) starts.
Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Chairman Benhur Abalos said that the Metro Manila mayors have agreed to implement unified curfew hours from 8pm to 5am starting April 12 until the end of MECQ on April 30.
Abalos also noted that the local chief executives, under the new rules approved by the IATF, have powers in adjusting curfew hours in the National Capital Region.
The Metro Manila Council, composed of the 17 LGUs of Metro Manila, is the policy- making body of the MMDA.
Meanwhile, authorized persons outside residence (APOR) are still exempted from the curfew provided they show proof of identification or certificate of employment to authorities.
