Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 14) — Muntinlupa City is set to impose a curfew to contain the coronavirus disease, or COVID-19, beginning Monday, its city public information office announced.
The city council on Saturday passed an ordinance on a curfew from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., starting March 16. Mayor Jaime Fresnedi will sign the document on Monday as well, Tez Navarro, Muntinlupa City PIO, told CNN Philippines.
This comes after Metro Manila mayors signed a resolution recommending the curfew to contain the disease.
Muntinlupa’s PIO on Twitter cited the resolution’s exemptions to the curfew, namely employees who work at night, such as call center agents and hospital personnel, delivery of basic goods, public transport services and peace and order personnel.
