MANILA, Philippines — The Interagency Taskforce on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) has approved the granular lockdown that will first be implemented in Metro Manila starting on Sept. 8, Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez announced in a Viber message on Saturday.

He did not, however, give details for quarantine classifications outside Metro Manila.

Interior Secretary Eduardo Año previously announced that granular lockdowns would replace community quarantine classifications in early September.

Malacañang said it favored that policy instead of placing large areas under quarantine.
