Task Force recommends GCQ for NCR

The Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) recommended that Metro Manila and Davao City be placed under general community quarantine (GCQ) from June 1 to 15, according to Dr. Tony Leachon, Special Adviser to the National Task Force COVID-19. 

Both areas are under modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) at present.

Cebu City, meanwhile, will remain under MECQ, Leachon told Dobol B sa News TV.

"MECQ ang Cebu City dahil sila ang second epicenter," he said. "The rest of the  country ay modified GCQ." 

President Rodrigo Duterte will make an announcement on the recommendation of the IATF on Thursday night, according to presidential spokesperson Harry Roque.  

The IATF is the government's policy-making body in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic.

Roque, however, refused to confirm the veracity of the copy of a supposed IATF memo that circulated online recommending GCQ for Metro Manila and Davao City.

"Can't [confirm]. PRRD (Duterte's initials) will announce tonight," he said in a message to reporters. 

The GCQ will pave the way for more businesses to open and for a percentage of workers to return to work provided that health protocols like social distancing and wearing of face mask are observed.
