During a press conference in the afternoon of March 16, President Rodrigo Duterte announced that all of Luzon will be under “enhanced community quarantine.

Stay tuned for further implementation guidelines.

The government had made a number of further clarifications regarding the Metro Manila quarantine over the weekend.

The Department of Transportation (DOTr) recently released its social-distancing guidelines for all modes of public transport. Now, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has identified designated terminals for all PUVs going in and out of the capital.

(Ed's note: Remember to limit non-essential travel. It's best to stay in if you can help it!)

All PUVs coming in from or headed out towards Bulacan must terminate at Robinsons Fairview, while eastbound PUVs or those coming in from the east must stop at the Bayani Fernando Central Terminal (BFCT) in Marikina City.

As for those headed from or towards the north, these PUVs must terminate at the North Luzon Expressway Terminal (NLET) in Bocaue, Bulacan. Meanwhile, the Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX) and Santa Rosa Integrated Terminal (SRIT) will connect the capital to the southwest and the south, respectively.

The LTFRB has clarified that no terminal fees shall be collected during the quarantine. These guidelines were agreed upon by the DOTr and LTFRB along with the Transport Regulatory Board, National Capital Region Police Office, Philippine National Police, and all toll, terminal, and PUV operators.
