As 57 areas in Metro Manila were placed under granular lockdowns, Manila and Pasay City moved to ensure full compliance with the Alert Level 4 guidelines put in effect by the national government for the remainder of September, according to a report by Daily Tribune.

Manila also issued its guidelines on the implementation of granular or localized lockdowns on areas that would have spikes in Covid-19 cases.

Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso has tapped Manila barangay bureau director Romeo Bagay and business permit and licensing office chief Levi Facundo to disseminate the executive order (EO) on the guidance he signed Wednesday evening.


EO 28, Domagoso explained, mirrored the national government’s measures to mitigate the effects of the pandemic on the economy while curbing the virus spread.

Domagoso assumed “the authority to impose granular lockdowns” with the concurrence of the Regional Inter-Agency Task Force” on the houses, residential buildings, streets, blocks subdivisions and villages to be closed temporarily.

Granular lockdowns shall be not less than 14 days and shall take effect immediately, he said.

Domagoso assured his constituents of assistance to individuals who will be affected by the granular lockdowns.

In Pasay City, Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano has created an inspection and enforcement team that will ensure health protocols under Alert Level 4 are observed.

Rubiano has sought the deployment of policemen to assist barangay officials and teams from its business permit and licensing offices in monitoring and enforcing the protocols.

The mayor said the city is allowing the construction of residential, housing and commercial establishments, provided that workers are based on-site and subject to strict compliance with minimum health protocols, whether private or public, under the guidelines issued by the Department of Public Works and Highways.

Rubiano said the city government will continue to implement the market day scheme to lessen the number of market-goers in the city’s public markets.

The mayor said the selling of liquor in the city will remain from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. However, only Pasay City residents are allowed to purchase during the window hour and must present their identification card or ID.
