From the previous 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., the curfew would now be from 8 p.m. to 4:30 a.m.

According to Governor Jonvic Remulla, the 30-minute adjustment is meant to provide a little headway for those traveling to work amid the limited public transportation.

"Four-thirty a.m. para mas maaga kayong makakapasok," Remulla said on a Facebook live announcement on June 12.

"Nalulungkot po ako at napakasakit sa akin ay yung transport policy ng LTFRB (Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board) at IATF (Inter-Agency Task Force on the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases) ay hindi pa rin po naaayos, hindi pa rin po klaro."

"Alam ko marami sa inyo ang nahihirapan, hindi pa rin pinapayagan ang angkas, ang other forms of transportation. Pero sana in the next few days ay maging mas klaro tayo mula sa IATF," he added.

Remulla also announced that number coding in Cavite is suspended starting Monday.
