Four streets in a barangay in Pasig City will be placed under a localized enhanced community quarantine starting this evening due to a spike in COVID-19 cases, the city government announced on Saturday, July 18.

The streets of Pipino, Labanos, Okra and Ubas in Napico, Barangay Manggahan will be on lockdown until further notice.

“Strict implementation will begin Sunday evening,” the LGU said. “Residents will only be allowed to leave their houses for work and emergency reasons.”

Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto said food packs will be distributed to the affected residents to minimize outside exposure and health risks.
