LOS BAÑOS, Laguna –– An ordinance was passed in Cabuyao City in Laguna province, imposing a moratorium on residential and business evictions for the duration of the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine, to prevent the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

Mayor Rommel Gecolea announced on social media Thursday that residential and small-business tenants could not be evicted while the moratorium is in force.


Rent payments are suspended for one month, and payments can be made when able, or until December 2020.

If businesses are still operating and if individuals still have work, they have to pay their rent, Gecolea said.


Real estate and business tax payments are extended without penalties.
