The Iloilo City Government has implemented shortened curfew hours while the city is under the modified general community quarantine (MGCQ).

Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas signed on July 21 Executive Order (EO) No. 103 Series of 2020, imposing a modified curfew which starts at 12 midnight and ends at 4 a.m.

The EO was posted on the Iloilo City Government’s official Facebook page. 

All persons shall continue to observe the said curfew for the period covered by the MGCQ until the classification is lifted or extended by the National Inter-agency Task Force (IATF). 

Those whose work arrangements and occupations require them to go to work beyond the curfew hours are exempted.

These include those who work at Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) and Knowledge Outsourcing (KPO) companies; warehouses and logistics; ports, arrastre, food manufacturing, storage and preservation, hospitals, media, and other similar businesses or occupations.

The EO may be amended as the need arises or upon recommendation of concerned national government agencies or the IATF.
