Tuguegarao City – This premier urban center in Cagayan Valley has been placed under a state of Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) to contain the recent surge of Covid19 cases.


Mayor Jefferson Soriano said the ECQ – the strictest quarantine classification – was put into effect by the Regional Inter-Agency Anti-Covid19 Task Force last Wednesday, and will last until this coming January 30.


However, Soriano said the ECQ or hard lockdown in Tuguegarao City could be extended by health officials depending on the severity of the situation.
Last Jan. 16, he said there were 84 new confirmed Covid cases registered in the city, which was the highest total in a single day since the pandemic started some 10 months ago.


Soriano said authorities would implement tougher measures such as banning operations of restaurants and limiting all forms of public transportation in accordance with ECQ guidelines.
