CITY OF ILAGAN–The city government has relaxed community quarantine measures being enforced in 29 villages after health workers completed contact-tracing for new COVID-19 cases.

Kiryll Bello, acting mayor, said the villages shifted to modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) after a meeting with officials of the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF).

Passes are being distributed to villagers to allow them to go out for essential travel starting on Tuesday (Aug. 11), according to Bello.
