Metro Manila, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna and Rizal—collectively called NCR Plus—will remain under general community quarantine (GCQ) with varying degrees of restrictions, from June 16 to 30, President Rodrigo Duterte announced on June 14.

Metro Manila and Bulacan will be under GCQ “with some restrictions” while Laguna, Cavite and Rizal will come under GCQ “with heightened restrictions”.

Also placed under GCQ from June 16 to June 30 are Davao del Norte, General Santos City, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani, Cotabato, and South Cotabato.

Other areas earlier placed under GCQ until month’s end are Baguio City, Kalinga, Mountain Province, Abra, Benguet, Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, Quirino, Batangas, Quezon, Iligan City, Lanao del Sur and Cotabato City.

Under stricter modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ), the second toughest lockdown level, are Bataan, Lucena City, Cagayan, Naga City, Iloilo, Negros Oriental, Davao City, Dinagat Islands, and Surigao Del Sur.

Earlier placed under MECQ for the rest of June are City of Santiago, Apayao, Ifugao, Puerto Princesa, Iloilo City, Zamboanga City, Zamboanga Sibugay, Zamboanga del Sur, Zamboanga del Norte, Cagayan de Oro City, Davao City, Butuan City, Agusan del Sur.

All other areas will remain under modified GCQ until the end of the month.

Logistics service providers are allowed to operate at 100% capacity, while cargo/delivery vehicles should still be allowed unhampered movement in areas under MECQ, GCQ, and MGCQ.

Within and across areas placed under any form of community quarantine, movement of all types of cargoes via land, air, and sea should remain unhampered. Likewise, workers in the logistics sector, such as those in cargo, trucking, courier delivery and port operations, should be allowed to transit within and across these areas, according to the omnibus guidelines set by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases.

The road, rail, maritime, and aviation sectors of public transportation are allowed to operate at the capacity set by DOTr.
