Most of the Isabela province has reverted back to tighter restrictions due to a rise in COVID-19 cases in the area, Malacañang announced.

Except Santiago City, Isabela Province has been placed by the IATF under general community quarantine (GCQ) until Dec. 31, said Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque. 

The decision was a response to the request of Isabela’s local government and the virus’ attack rate, he told reporters. 

Prior to this, Isabela was under modified GCQ, the most relaxed of the lockdown levels. 

Metro Manila and 7 other areas are under GCQ until the end of the year. Only select businesses are allowed to operate at full capacity in GCQ areas.
The Philippines has tallied around 450,000 coronavirus infections, as of Monday.
