Malacañang announced on Saturday that the Enhanced Community Quarantine across Metro Manila, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, and Rizal (NCR+), will be extended for another week from Monday, April 5, to Sunday, April 11, 2021. The IATF recommended the extension of the quarantine after the Department of Health recorded an all-time high of new COVID-19 cases last week.

“The IATF recommended the extension of ECQ for a minimum of one week in Metro Manila, and provinces of Laguna, Bulacan, Cavite and Rizal,” said Presidential spokesperson, Harry Roque, through a virtual meeting last weekend.

LTO remains closed


With the lockdown staying in place, some government offices, including the Land Transportation Office (LTO), have announced that their operations will be temporarily suspended at least until after the ECQ is lifted.
