The LGU has begun enforcing a nightly curfew after its city council passed earlier on March 15, an ordinance allowing the measure aimed at stifling the spread of the 2019 coronavirus.
As was agreed on by the Metro Manila Council, Pasig’s curfew runs from 8 pm to 5 am, during which all citizens are expected to stay indoors unless they fall under the following exceptions:
- People going to work or returning home from work
- People buying food and essential supplies
- People responding to emergencies
- People traveling for medical or health reasons
The police patrol begins a few minutes past 9 pm. Mayor Vico Sotto encourages his constituents to stay at home instead to avoid the spread of today's pandemic.
