Starting June 15, the curfew in Metro Manila will be shortened to 12 a.m. to 4 a.m. from the current 10 p.m. to 4 a.m., according to Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairman Benhur Abalos.

All Metro Manila mayors agreed to ease the curfew fours, taking into account the declining daily rate of COVID-19 cases and hospital bed occupancy in the metro, Abalos said during an interview with state-run People’s Television Network.

The decision will help boost the economy, he said.

The announcement comes as the prevailing general community quarantine with restrictions in Metro Manila is set to expire on June 15.

To recall, MMDA’s policy making body, Metro Manila Council, decided to implement unified curfew hours from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. starting April 12 until the end of the modified enhanced community quarantine on April 30. The unified curfew hours was then shortened to 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. starting May 1.
