Some LGUs ask gov't to reconsider quarantine status
Some local government units asked for reconsideration about their quarantine status in November, according to the spokesman of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) in a report by GMA News.
DILG Undersecretary Jonathan Malaya, however, refused to reveal which localities made an appeal as their requests must still be processed by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases.
"Mayroon po na mga appeal ngunit hindi ko pa po puwedeng ito ay ilabas, 'yun po kasi ang proseso namin. Hindi po kami nagbibigay ng announcement until maproseso ito ng IATF but we will make the necessary announcement po kung mayroon nang desisyon ang technical working group at napagdesisyunan na po ito ng IATF," Malaya said at a Laging Handa press briefing.
President Rodrigo Duterte placed Metro Manila, Batangas, Iloilo City, Bacolod City, Tacloban City, Iligan City, and Lanao Del Sur under general community quarantine from November 1 to 30.
Duterte said most of the local government units preferred to make the community quarantine classifications permanent since they showed good results in lowering COVID-19 cases.
