The curfew hours in Cavite have been set to 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. beginning January 13 to curb the COVID-19 spike in the province.
This is per Province Ordinance No. 342-2022 passed by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan members on January 10.
“The Omicron variant is found to be more transmissible, thus, a rapid increase of confirmed COVID-19 cases has been observed in the province of Cavite and the Philippines as a whole,” the ordinance stated.
The ordinance also said that curfew hours are necessary to limit the movement of people especially in public places.
Meanwhile, Cavite’s provincial government also implemented a work-from-home setup beginning January 12 due to an increase in personnel who contracted COVID-19.
The Provincial Health Office and all provincially supervised hospitals, however, will continue to operate at full capacity.
Cavite, Metro Manila, and several other areas will remain under Alert Level 3 from January 16 to 31, 2022.
