Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla said he is not willing to shorten curfew hours in the province given the possible health risks.
“We are not out of the woods yet. Tag-ulan pa ngayon at mas mabilis ang pagkalat ng COVID (It’s rainy season and COVID-19 is spreading faster),” Remulla said in a Facebook post Wednesday.
The curfew in Cavite remains from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m.
Among those exempted from the curfew are workers coming home from work, health workers, and on-duty government personnel.
“Ang hindi ko lang maintindihan ay sa France, Netherlands, Italy, Portugal, Germany, at Spain ay naghigpit na muli tapos dito sa atin ay gusto luwagan ang mga patakaran (What I just don’t understand is that France, the Netherlands, Italy, Portugal, Germany, and Spain have tightened up restrictions again and here we want to ease restrictions),” Remulla added.
Earlier, the Inter-Agency Task Force on COVID-19 appealed to local government units to trim curfew hours and to ease quarantine age to boost economic activity and reopening of more businesses.
