Quezon City has issued guidelines for residents and non-residents as Metro Manila returns to modified enhanced community (MECQ) quarantine.

In a memorandum dated Aug. 3,  Mayor Joy Belmonte said quarantine passes will once again take effect while the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages, as well as community assemblies and non-essential work gatherings, shall be prohibited.

A 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew hour will also be implemented, although essential activities such as food take-out and delivery, pharmacies, hospitals, convenience stores, and market operations may operate on a 24-hour basis.

The operations of dine-in services, entertainment, sports, and personal care establishments will also not be allowed.

For people traveling into the city, the memo states that they must be able to show proof of a legitimate non-leisure reason for being in the city, such as a company ID of a permitted establishment or ID showing a residence address in the city, before being allowed entry.

Meanwhile, the businesses allowed to operate at full capacity are:

  • Food, water, and non-alcoholic beverage manufacture, distribution, or preparation (take-out and delivery only)

  • Banks, money transfer services, microfinance institutions, credit cooperatives, and their armored vehicle services and other related services
  • Housing service activities
  • Rental and leasing of vehicles or equipment for permitted businesses
  • Employment services, including recruitment and placement, for permitted businesses

The businesses allowed to operate at up to 50 percent capacity are:

  • General manufacturing and production

  • Construction of essential or priority facilities
  • Office administrative, and support services
  • Hotels, motels, and similar establishments, but only for special purpose accommodations for healthcare workers, overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), workers in permitted sectors, and non-OFWs with mandated quarantine, or guests who have existing long-term bookings
  • Funeral services and crematoriums
  • Veterinary clinics
  • Financial services (other than those listed under full operations)
