President Rodrigo Duterte has maintained the general community quarantine classification or GCQ for Metro Manila and several other areas through March, Malacañang announced Saturday.
Areas under GCQ from March 1-31 are:
- Metro Manila
- Baguio City
- Mountain Province
- Tacloban City
- Iligan City
- Davao City
- Lanao del Sur
The rest of the country will be under modified general community quarantine or MGCQ.
Duterte's economic managers had recommended a nationwide MGCQ, citing the need to revive the economy. But delayed vaccine shipments scuttled the eyed transition.
