Extreme enhanced community quarantine (EECQ)

Mayor Joy Belmonte explained that the EECQ is implemented in barangays with two or more confirmed cases and/or in congested urban poor areas where fast transmission of the disease is highly probable.

This is reviewed daily depending on the number of cases/recoveries.

However, the newly reported barangays with at least two COVID-19 cases are not yet included in the list since validation is still being undertaken.

As of March 31, 7 p.m., the Quezon City government is implementing EECQ in the following barangays:

Tandang Sora, Kalusugan, Ramon Magsaysay, Maharlika, Tatalon, Batasan Hills, Pasong Tamo, Central, San Roque, Paligsahan, Bagong Lipunan ng Crame, South Triangle, Culiat, Bahay Toro, E. Rodriguez, San Isidro Labrador, Matandang Balara, and Teachers Village West.

Belmonte explained that Barangay Central does not have COVID-19 patients but was included in the EECQ due to the presence of numerous hospitals along East Avenue.

Decontamination efforts

The Quezon City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office and the Quezon City Fire Department have continuously disinfected the city’s streets and highways.

As of March 31, 138 barangays were disinfected as part of the continuous simultaneous decontamination operations.

Food packs distribution

As of 7 p.m. of March 31, the Quezon City government has distributed more than 952,000 food packs.

Mobile fresh market

The Quezon City Small Business and Cooperatives Development and Promotions Office launched its own mobile fresh market on March 31 in Barangay Mariana and Barangay Greater Lagro.

Hope II officially opens

Belmonte said the city’s Hope 2 Community Care Center, a temporary quarantine facility, officially opened on March 31 and accepts persons under investigation (PUI) for COVID-19.
