The National Capital Region, Bulacan and Batangas remain under general community quarantine (GCQ) for the month of September.

Tacloban and Bacolod were also placed under GCQ from the less stringent modified GCQ (MGCQ), President Rodrigo Duterte announced in a late night televised public address on August 31.

Iligan City, meanwhile, will revert to the more stringent modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) due to the rising number of coronavirus cases in the area.

The new quarantine status for these areas was recommended by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases.

The rest of the Philippines is under MGCQ.

In GCQ areas, the logistics sector is allowed to operate at full capacity, according to the latest omnibus guidelines on the implementation of community quarantine.

The road, rail, maritime, and aviation sectors of public transportation are also allowed to operate at a reduced operational and vehicle capacity in accordance with the guidelines issued by the Department of Transportation.

All public transport vehicles should also observe a strict one-meter distance between passengers and have appropriate engineering controls put in place.

Movement of all types of cargoes via land, air, and sea within and across areas placed under any form of community quarantine should remain unhampered. Workers in the logistics sector should likewise be allowed to transit across areas placed under any form of community quarantine.

For Iligan City, quarantine and work passes will again be required. Movement will be limited and there are only a select number of business activities allowed to operate either at full or 50% capacity.
