Weekend ECQ to be reviewed in 3 weeks

By Jason B. Neola

The Naga City Government will conduct a reassessment of the results of the implementation of the weekend Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) after three or four weeks from the time it was implemented on Friday, Sept. 24.

The plan to review the city’s quarantine classification during Saturdays and Sundays is intended to continue to find the best approach that will effectively help limit the transmission of Covid-19 in the city.

“We need to know how the weekend ECQ made impacts on our campaign to lessen the number of people infected with the virus,” Mayor Nelson Legacion said.

The weekend ECQ in the city was implemented to limit the number of people going outside of their houses and crowding in some public places for non-essential purposes. The approach also aims to reduce the number of non-Naga residents coming in the city for non-essential purposes.

On weekdays, the city reverts to the GCQ status with heightened restrictions.

The weekend ECQ starts at 9:00 PM Friday and ends the following Monday at 4:00 AM. It is being implemented with assistance of volunteers from different groups who served as force multipliers, the Naga City Police Office, Public Safety Office, and barangay tanod from the city’s 27 barangays.
