Iloilo to Remain in MGCQ

Iloilo City, along with Iloilo Province, Capiz, Negros Occidental, and Bacolod City, are to remain under Modified General Community Quarantine (MGCQ, moderate risk), in an announcement made by President Rodrigo Duterte in an address to the nation last night, June 30. Moreover, other Western Visayas Provinces such as Aklan, Antique, and Guimaras have been classified as ‘low risk’, but will still remain under MGCQ, according to Health Secretary Francisco Duque.

MGCQ areas are required to have ‘strict local action’ on localized community quarantine. This includes strict enforcement of health standards, zoning, scale up of system capacity, and provision of an isolation facility for LSIs, OFWs, and close contacts.
