Caloocan City shortens curfew hours

/ 05:10 AM July 05, 2020

MANILA, Philippines — Curfew hours in Caloocan City have been eased to 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., shorter by two hours, after city Mayor Oscar Malapitan signed a new ordinance.

Ordinance No. 0876, which took effect on Friday, was passed as many city residents returned to work due to the implementation of general community quarantine.


But the limited operations of public transportation have left many individuals stranded on the road until after curfew hours, according to the measure.

It added that it was practical and reasonable to ease the curfew hours to accommodate the needs of Caloocan residents.


However, residents aged 21 and under, and elderly citizens aged 60 and above, immunocompromised and pregnant residents should be strictly confined at home.
