Zamboanga City will reimpose its Sunday lockdown with modifications, effective August 1, due to the continuing threat of the more transmissible Delta variant.

Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco-Salazar announced, in a Facebook post on Saturday, that the lockdown will last until August 15.

Under the Sunday lockdown, only those going places of worship; health, Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM), and security front-liners; and those with emergency cases would be allowed outside of their residences.

Religious activities shall be limited to 30 percent venue capacity.

Supermarkets and groceries will only serve front-liners, while all public markets, including flea markets, and stores in barangays will be closed.

Others are advised to stay at home while children 17 years old and below will not be allowed outdoors.

No dine-in services are allowed. Restaurants and food servers shall only accommodate food delivery and take-out.
Public transportation shall also be suspended.

Mountain, beach and river resorts will be closed on Saturdays and Sundays.

This city will be under general community quarantine from August 1 to 31. – Rommel F. Lopez
