Curfew in Pasay City back to 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. under MECQ

The Pasay City council on Aug. 5 passed an ordinance setting the curfew hours in the city back to 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. after President Duterte once again placed Mega Manila under modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) last Aug. 4.

 According to Mayor Emi Calixto Rubiano, the city first implemented the 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew in the city when enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) was declared in the National Capital Region on March 15.

 She said the curfew hours were eased to 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. after Metro Manila was placed under general community quarantine (GCQ), when more  businesses and industries were allowed to reopen and limited public transportation was permitted to resume.

The mayor said the city government will be stricter with the imposition of curfew hours in the city to curb the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

 Rubiano also said the selling and buying of liquor and other beverages will only be allowed between 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
