Manila shortens curfew to 4 hours
Manila will adopt shorter curfew hours for the remaining months of 2020, from 12 am to 4 am until November 30, and 12 am to 3 am starting December 1, according to Mayor Francisco ‘Isko Moreno’ Domagoso.
Domagoso signed Ordinance No. 8692 adopting the shorter curfew hours ahead of the holiday season. He was joined by Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna-Pangan and City Council Majority Floor Leader Joel Chua during the signing of the ordinance.
Curfew hours were eased based on “approved proposals of the Economic Development Cluster on the gradual expansion of business operations to stimulate and sustain economic gains,” the Mayor said.
“Despite the gradual relaxation of curfew hours, quarantine and social distancing protocols within the City of Manila will remain to be enforced in accordance with IATF guidelines,” he added.
Minors, however, are still not covered by shortened curfew hours. The Mayor said they are still subjected to Ordinance No. 8547, which establishes “protection and discipline hours” for minors from 10:00 pm to 4:00 am.
The ordinance takes effect immediately after its approval. It was signed after Domagoso issued Executive Order No. 41 which increases the authorized seating capacity of religious gatherings in churches, mosques and chapels from 10% to 30%.
