ECQ is a form of community quarantine implementing temporary measures imposing stringent limitations on movement and transportation of people, strict regulation of operating industries, provision of food and essential services, and heightened presence of uniformed personnel to enforce community quarantine protocols, while MECQ is a less strict form of ECQ.

GCQ is a less restricted form of community quarantine than MECQ while MCGQ is a more relaxed version of GCQ and is the transition phase to the “new normal.”
