CAR posts P15.66-B loss during ECQ

The Cordillera has recorded P18,687,546,030.25 economic loss during the community quarantine due to the coronavirus disease-2019 (Covid-19) pandemic.

UNDER MODIFIED GCQ -- Baguio City, which has recorded 32 confirmed cases with high recovery rate based on the tally of the City Health Services Office, will be placed under modified general community quarantine starting June 1 after the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases noted the city’s best practices against the Covid-19 pandemic. The city government will issue the localized MGCQ guidelines, which include strict observance of protocols even in city borders, which the Baguio City Police Office and its partners have been implementing since the lockdown in March. -- Harley Palangchao

Personnel of the La Trinidad Municipal Police Station built a sturdy home for an 86-year-old grandmother who was living alone in an old pigpen at Sitio Kibungan Village in Puguis, La Trinidad, Benguet.

Restrictions imposed during the general community quarantine will now be relaxed as the Cordillera has been placed under modified general community quarantine effective June 1.

Tough travel blamed on LTFRB & TTMC

Transportation is still challenging even under a modified general community quarantine as the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board still imposes some provisions of the Public Transportation Modernization Act in the issuance of special permits to public utility vehicles.
