Workers and medical frontliners or authorized persons outside of residence (APOR) are exempted from the unified curfew in Metro Manila from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) General Manager Jojo Garcia confirmed this during an online Palace briefing.
“Sa curfew, exempted po lahat ng APOR, meaning yung authorized persons outside residence exempted po yan,” Garcia said.
“Kaya nga po let’s say ang isang business establishment hanggang 10 p.m. sila, nag-overtime ‘yan, pakita lang po yung ID nila at ‘yan naman po ay hindi huhulihin, nagkasundo ang ating mga mayors,” he said.
“Pero of course yung ating mga manggagawa, lalo na ang ating medical frontliners, yan po ay exempted,” he added.
Garcia added that this was agreed upon by all Metro Manila mayors.
He stressed that the unified curfew shall be followed mostly in residential areas. Rommel F. Lopez
