Last May 12, Malacañang announced a transition from the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) to a modified ECQ in select parts of the country. However, many are still unsure about exactly which areas will operate under a modified ECQ, a GCQ, or have no quarantine restrictions altogether.

Here’s a list to clear up some confusion:

Areas under modified ECQ

  • National Capital Region (NCR)
  • Laguna
  • Cebu

(NCR and Select Cities to Undergo “Modified ECQ,” Here are the Details)

The same rules of ECQ apply in the modified version: people are required to stay home, except to buy food, other necessities, and for emergencies.

The list of sectors cleared to resume operations will be announced this Wednesday. Transporation agencies will also be formulating rules on the resumption of limited public transportation and will announce them later this week.

The modified ECQ will begin on May 16. The Luzon-wide ECQ will end on May 15.

Areas under ECQ

Local government units (LGUs) were authorized to discern which barangays ought to be placed under ECQ, based on their level of risk. Critical zones and containment zones could remain under ECQ, pending approval of the regional Inter-Agency Task Force.

According to Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, “critical zones” are those with more than 20 cases per 100,000 residents while “containment zones” are those with 1-19 cases per 100,000 population.

Mayors and governors will be declaring which areas are considered ‘critical’ or ‘containment’ zones. There have yet to be any final announcements on this.

  • Cordillera Administrative Region: Abra, Apayao, Benguet, Ifugao, Kalinga, Mountain Province, Baguio City
  • Region 2: Batanes, Cagayan, Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, Quirino, Santiago City
