The use of quarantine passes will be implemented anew in Manila as the National Capital Region (NCR) will be under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) again starting August 6 until August 20.

The Manila Barangay Bureau (MBB) ordered all the barangay officials to issue quarantine passes to their constituents.

“Only one quarantine pass shall be issued to each family,” the memorandum stated.

All quarantine passes will be in odd and even format. Those with quarantine passes ending in odd numbers (1,3,5,7,9) will be allowed to go outside on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and 5:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. only on Sundays.

Meanwhile, those with quarantine passes ending in even numbers (2,4,6,8,0) can go out in public on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and 12 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. only on Sundays.

Non-quarantine pass holders can still go out for their vaccination and will be required to present their QR codes and waivers.

The MBB encouraged the public to get vaccinated as soon as possible.

President Duterte approved on Friday (July 30) the recommendation to place Metro Manila back to ECQ from August 6 to 20 due to the spike in COVID-19 cases.
