Ilocos Norte was placed under modified enhanced community quarantine, the second most restrictive classification, on August 16 as a measure to curb the spread of COVID-19 cases which had been fueled by the Delta variant.

The weekly recorded average of new COVID-19 cases had plateaued from August 6-13 as it dropped from 273.6 cases to 90 cases during the period of Sept. 10 to 17, according to the provincial government.

Under GCQ, most of the quarantine restrictions would be lifted, allowing businesses to operate at a 30- to 50-percent capacity. INQ
