BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya –– The modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) imposed on Solano town has been extended for another 15 days as cases of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continued to rise, officials said.

The provincial COVID-19 task force has approved the recommendation of Solano’s inter-agency task force to extend its MECQ period, which will initially end on Sept. 15, until the end of this month.
