Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 14) — Metro Manila mayors are set to issue a resolution revising the unified curfew hours to 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. during the pilot run of the alert level system from Sept. 16 to 30, Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Chairman Benhur Abalos said on Tuesday.

The current curfew time is from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m.

Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said all local chief executives also agreed to place the capital region under a unified community quarantine classification due to its porous borders.

Metro Manila will be under Alert Level 4 starting Sept. 16.

Under Alert Level 4, persons below 18 years old and over 65 years old, those with comorbidities, and pregnant women are not allowed to go out of their houses. However, they are permitted to go outside if they are buying essential goods or services or working in permitted industries.

Outdoor dine-in services, barbershops, hair spas, nail spas, beauty salons, and physical religious gatherings are allowed to operate for up to 30% of their outdoor seating capacity, regardless of vaccination status. These establishments and services can also operate indoors for up to 10% capacity, but employees and customers must have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Intrazonal and interzonal travel for authorized persons outside of residences would be allowed subject to the regulations of the local government of destination.
