Curfew, liquor ban in Davao City extended until May 31

The Davao City local government has extended the liquor ban in public places and curfew in the city until May 31, 2021, to continue to control the spread of COVID-19.

This is based on the new executive order released on Wednesday.

According to Davao City Duterte, the removal of the curfew and liquor will only entice some people to have a gathering, which is one of the reasons for the spread of COVID-19.

“Based on our experience dati, when we removed that during MGCQ [modified general community quarantine], nag-encourage siya ng mga people na magtipon,” said Duterte.

The liquor ban and curfew would have ended on March 31, starting at 9 pm until 4 am.

Employees and businesses will be allowed to leave their homes during the curfew during the hours it covers, based on the law.

The total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Davao City is 13,568.

As of Wednesday, 15 cases were added. Before that, no new cases were recorded by the city on Monday.

Despite the apparent decrease in new cases in Davao City, the authorities will continue to tighten the implementation of health protocols.
