MMDA Announces Curfew Lift in Metro Starting November 4

The Metro Manila Development Authority announces curfew lift after 19 months.

If you are one of those rushing home because of the curfew in Metro Manila, there’s some good news. The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) announced on Wednesday, November 3, that there will be no more curfew in the National Capital Region (NCR).

The decision was made in agreement with all the mayors in Metro Manila. The lift is implemented beginning November 4.

“The lifting of curfew hours in Metro Manila will help spread out the influx of people coming to and from malls to further reduce the risk of virus transmission,” MMDA Chairman Benhur Abalos said.

Abalos, however, said that they will respect the LGU’s decision to implement curfew to minors or those below 18 years old.

The resolution also notes that all mayors have agreed to extend mall hours until 11:00 pm in time for the Christmas season.

Official Announcement of the MMDA

Prior to the lift, Metro Manila had a curfew between 12 midnight to 4 in the morning.

The curfew lift comes as COVID-19 cases in the NCR have dwindled thanks to the continuing vaccination efforts among the LGUs. NCR, however, is still under Alert 3, which means a number of establishments remain at limited capacity.
