OLONGAPO CITY — Mayor Rolen Paulino Jr. on Monday issued an executive order easing more quarantine restrictions in the city under COVID-19 Alert Level 2 as the city continues to see a downward trend in virus spread.

Part of the more relaxed health protocols was allowing parents or guardians to bring their children to malls, restaurants, amusement parks and other establishments, Paulino said.

Earlier, Paulino also set a shorter curfew from 12 midnight until 4 a.m. Previously, the city’s curfew was from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.
