Despite the rising COVID-19 cases and deaths in the province, Gov. Carlos Padilla said they would not return to a stricter modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ).

“The reclassification of the quarantine status for the province from modified general community quarantine to MECQ is just one of the proposals being considered by the executive committee of the Provincial COVID-19 Task Group. However, it was held in abeyance for the meantime,” Padilla said.
