The new curfew supersedes Remulla’s April 12 announcement that Cavite’s curfew hours will be from 10 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. under the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ).

Aside from the new curfew hours, retail stores in the province are now allowed to operate within mall hours.

Restaurants are allowed to offer al fresco dining but customers are encouraged to stick to take out and delivery as much as possible. Religious activities are allowed at 10 percent capacity.

According to Remulla, the effects of the two-week Enhanced Community Quarantine can now be seen across the province.

“Kahapon ay 180+ ang kaso. Mataas pa rin ito pero mababa na sa peak na 1,884 cases 10 days ago (Yesterday, we recorded 180+ cases. This is still high but lower than the peak 1,884 cases 10 days ago,” Remulla said in a Facebook post.

According to data from the Department of Health Center for Health Development Region IVA, Cavite has 7,282 active cases as of April 13, the highest count within Calabarzon (Cavite-Laguna-Batangas-Rizal-Quezon).
