CARAGA REGION REMAINS UNDER GENERAL COMMUNITY QUARANTINE UNTIL MAY 31
CARAGA – The general community quarantine (GCQ) in the Caraga region was supposed to be lifted on May 15, Friday. However, it is now extended until May 31 following the assessment conducted by the Inter-Agency Task Force based on Resolution No. 35.
In an interview with Gov. Dale Corvera, chairman of Regional Task Force COVID-19 One Caraga Shield, movements of people will still be limited, only allowing those who are going out for essential services and work, considering that several establishments are now permitted to go back to business.
Minors who are 21 years old and below, and senior citizens aging 60 years old and above should stay at home.
Only around 50 percent of buses are allowed to operate to follow social distancing, which should also be observed in private vehicles.
Agusan del Norte has authorized the municipality to municipality transportation such as in Cabadbaran City, the province’s commercial center, where several municipalities including Magallanes, RTR, Tubay, Jabonga, and Santiago are permitted to go the city’s market provided that they follow the designated schedules to control the volume of the people coming in.
