Mayor Sara Duterte said the reclassification will be implemented on Wednesday, according to information relayed to the local government by the IATF. | kmanlupigINQ

The mayor, however, said the city government would abide by the recommendation to return to a stricter community quarantine if the appeal would be denied.

She said the lifting of restrictions was one of the reasons behind the new cases, especially after more residents were allowed to leave their homes to work since establishments were allowed to reopen. “And we have those who were exposed [to] their housemates who tested positive. There is also local transmission, plus the arriving locally stranded individuals and returning OFWs ,” she added.

When the IATF downgraded Davao City to MGCQ, Duterte expressed surprise, considering that new cases were still being reported by health workers that time. The local government urged residents to faithfully comply with precautionary measures to stop the spread of the disease. “We should treat everyone as COVID-19 positive. So we should protect ourselves,” Duterte said. INQ
