GUIDE: Adjusted Grocery Operating Hours During MECQ
The MECQ starts from August 4 until August 18, 2020.
During President Duterte's nation address last August 2, he announced the return to modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) for the National Capital Region (NCR), Laguna, Rizal, Cavite, and Bulacan beginning August 4 until August 18, 2020. While many services, like dining in restaurants, are temporarily suspended for this two-week quarantine, supermarkets will remain open.
If you're planning on doing a grocery run anytime soon, we have a guide to the adjusted supermarket hours during MECQ. Don't forget to bring your quarantine pass and a hand sanitizer, wear a mask, and observe social distancing!
