Under Ordinance No. 8658 recently signed by Mayor Francisco "Isko Moreno" Domagoso, curfew hours will automatically change depending on the quarantine status imposed by the national government.

During ECQ and MECQ, residents will not be allowed to go outside their houses from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. without a valid reason, while during general community quarantine, they are not allowed out during the curfew hours of 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Aside from this restriction, the city also enforces an odd-even scheme for market-goers.

Those with quarantine passes ending in odd numbers will be allowed to leave their houses from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and 5 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sundays.

Meanwhile, those with quarantine passes ending in even numbers can go out in public from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays.
