The cities of Cebu, Mandaue and Zamboanga have been added to the areas that will be under general community quarantine from June 1 to June 15.

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, May 30) — More areas were added to the list of places that will shift to general community quarantine (GCQ) beginning June 1, a Malacanang official said Saturday.

In the regular ‘Laging Handa’ briefing, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the cities of Cebu, Mandaue and Zamboanga will ease into GCQ until June 15.

The same relaxed quarantine measures will be implemented in Zambales, Angeles City, and Olongapo City in Central Luzon.

Together with Metro Manila, other areas easing into GCQ on Monday are:

*Region 2 or Cagayan Valley (Batanes, Cagayan, Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, Quirino, Santiago City)

*Region 3 or Central Luzon (Aurora, Bataan, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Tarlac)

*Region 4-A or Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon, Lucena City)



*Region 7 or Central Visayas (Bohol, Cebu, Negros Oriental, Siquijor)

*Davao City

"Ang lahat po ng ibang lugar sa Pilipinas na hindi ko nabanggit, lahat po kayo ay nasa modified GCQ," Roque said.

[Translation: All the areas in the Philippines which I did not mention, all of you are under modified GCQ.]
