Due to the recent surge of COVID-19 infection, Malacañang together with the IATF announced that Metro Manila, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna and Rizal will be placed under GCQ with added restrictions through IATF Resolution No. 104.

“Wala po tayong lockdown. Fake news po yung sinasabi na magkakaroon tayo ng circuit breaker. Hindi po totoo ‘yan. Ang Metro Manila po ay manananitili under GCQ kasama po ang mga probinsya ng Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, at Rizal. Bawal po ang pagbibiyahe papunta sa Metro Manila at mga probinsya ng Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Rizal at bawal din po lumabas ng Metro Manila at ng Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Rizal. Magkakaroon po tayo ng parang bubble dito sa NCR at probinsya ng Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Rizal (Traveling into and out of Metro Manila and the provinces of Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Rizal will be prohibited. We will have a sort of bubble in NCR, and the provinces of Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Rizal),”  said Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque.

Individuals crossing zones for work or business and going back home will also be allowed to travel to and from the said areas. Just show your work I.D.’s.

“Kung kayo ay uuwi, essential travel po ‘yun. Kailangan lang magpakita ng ID kung saan ka talaga nakatira (If you’re going back home that’s essential travel. All you need to do is show your ID to prove that you live there),” he said.

He expressed hope the public would understand that additional restrictions in the said areas were being done “for the common good.”
