COVID-19 cases shot up to nearly 8,000 over the weekend, the government announced stricter quarantine measures – a stricter GCQ within a new Metro Manila-Rizal-Bulacan-Cavite-Laguna bubble.

The new protocols are in effect from March 22 to April 4, unless extended or shortened by President Rodrigo Duterte.

Under this stricter GCQ, the government is only encouraging a reduction to 30 percent to 50 percent of capacity for most of the government and private sector.

"When applicable, allowed workplace capacity should be kept at 30 percent to 50 percent," Presidential Spokesperson Secretary Harry Roque said in a briefing earlier. (PIA-NCR)
