“I’ll let you know. But if I’m not mistaken, it will be tomorrow,” presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said Monday in an online briefing.

Previously, Roque said the COVID-19 task force already informed local government units of their quarantine classifications after June 30.


These recommendations will then be presented to the President for his approval.

Duterte two weeks ago extended the general community quarantine status of Metro Manila and several other areas until June 30.


Cebu City is under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) while Talisay City is under modified ECQ.

As of Sunday, there over 35,000 COVID-19 cases have been reported and recorded nationwide.

One thousand two hundred forty four patients have died while 9,686 others have recovered.  ‘
