A List of Provinces and Cities Under the Different Quarantine Schemes Until July 15

Know which quarantine your province is under based on the President's announcement on June 30.

Every 15 days, or around two weeks, President Rodrigo Duterte and the Inter-Agency Task Force meets to determine whether or not community quarantines will be lifted or changed in each province and city in the country. It all depends on the number of cases in each area, if their number of new cases are spiking, and if the general public is following quarantine guidelines and protocols.

Yesterday, June 30, the task force met again and consulted with the president for his announcement at night. And at around 11PM on the same day, the president has announced the list of provinces and cities under each of the quarantine schemes: Modified General Community Quarantine (MGCQ), General Community Quarantine (MGCQ), and Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ).

MGCQ areas, meanwhile, have been categorized into two—with strict local action and low risk areas. (Read: What is the difference between MECQ, GCQ, and MGCQ?)

The following are the provinces and cities under each type of community quarantine, with effectivity until July 15:
