MANILA, Philippines – The Manila City government announced it will issue quarantine passes to restrict the movement of its constituents during the enforcement of enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in Metro Manila and nearby provinces for one week.
In a statement on Sunday, the Manila Public Information Office (PIO) said a memo has been sent, directing all barangay chiefs to issue one quarantine pass per family.
“The memo explains that the holders of the quarantine passes can only go out during their designated schedules,” the Manila PIO said.
“The schedules are determined based on the control numbers of the quarantine passes,” it added.
The said schedules, which follow an odd-even scheme, are the following:
• ODD NUMBERS – Those whose control numbers are odd numbers (1, 3, 7, 9, and so on) can go out on MONDAY, WEDNESDAY, and FRIDAY from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. as well as on SUNDAY from 5 a.m. to 11 a.m.
• EVEN NUMBERS – Those whose control numbers are even numbers (2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and so on) can go out on TUESDAY, THURSDAY, and SATURDAY from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. as well as on SUNDAY from 12 noon to 6 p.m.
