LAOAG CITY—Health authorities are eyeing to place La Union’s capital city of San Fernando under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) for two weeks beginning Oct. 1 after the Delta variant of COVID-19 was detected there.

The imposition of ECQ, the most restrictive containment classification in the country, would allow the city to contain the spread of the virus, the city government said Sunday.
