MANILA, Philippines — Metro Manila will implement shorter curfew hours starting Monday, April 12, as the capital region reverted to modified enhanced community quarantine.

In a statement Sunday, Metropolitan Manila Development Authority chair Benhur Abalos said that Metro Manila mayors have agreed to impose unified curfew hours from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. until the end of April.

Curfew hours in the capital region were previously set from 6 p.m. to 5 a.m.

This comes as the national government lifted the two-week implementation of enhanced community quarantine—the strictest form of lockdown in the country—in Metro Manila, Bulacan, Rizal, Laguna, Cavite.

Metro Manila and its surrounding provinces—dubbed the “NCR Plus” bubble—will be under MECQ starting April 12 until April 30.
