Malls to open but curfew stays as Jonvic Remulla announces GCQ status for Cavite
Malls in Cavite will reopen starting May 16 with the province set to be under general community quarantine, Governor Jonvic Remulla said Tuesday, May 11.
In a Facebook post, Remulla said he was informed by Malacanang about Cavite’s GCQ status. With the easing of restrictions, the governor said the province’s economy can reopen slowly.
However, Metro Manila and Laguna will remain under ECQ, he added.
Under GCQ, Remulla said malls will be allowed to reopen, though the airconditioning will be warmer. There will also be no free wifi for shoppers.
Restaurants can resume operations, but will only be allowed to offer takeout services. Factories and construction services can likewise restart.
Still prohibited under GCQ are the sale of alcoholic products and operations of bars. Wearing of face masks is mandatory and the 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew will still be observed.
Remulla said it will be the Department of Transportation which will announce guidelines on the resumption of public transport.
