Curfew shortened in Caloocan

Meanwhile, Mayor Oscar Malapitan has approved an ordinance shortening the curfew hours in Caloocan during the general community quarantine.

Malapitan said he has signed Ordinance No. 0876 that shortened the curfew in Caloocan to 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m to accommodate those going home late from work due to limited public transportation.

The curfew was shortened to also accommodate dine-in customers in restaurants, which had been allowed by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Disease on a 30 percent capacity.

Malapitan reminded his constituents that under a general community quarantine, vulnerable residents who are below 21 years old and 60 years old and above should stay at home.

“Despite shortening the curfew, we should still comply with health protocols like social distancing, wearing of face masks, and handwashing/sanitizing,” Malapitan said.
