BALIWAG, Bulacan –– The local government will again impose a curfew starting Wednesday, March 17, as part of the stricter implementation of a modified general community quarantine (MGCQ).

He said a liquor ban was again imposed while bars or nightclubs were also ordered closed until April 4 or until a new advisory is released by the municipal Inter-Agency Task Force.

The tougher MGCQ guidelines would help prevent the escalation of the cases of coronavirus diseases (COVID-19), Estrella said in a text message.

As of Monday, the town recorded 107 active COVID-19 cases. Since last year, there have been 861 COVID-19 cases here.
