IATF lowers Oro’s quarantine status to GCQ

THE Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging and Infectious Diseases has approved the appeal of Cagayan de Oro to de-escalate community quarantine restrictions.

The IATF placed Cagayan de Oro under general community quarantine (GCQ) with heightened restrictions from October 1 to 31.

However, despite the lower quarantine status, City Mayor Oscar Moreno reminded the public not to be reckless and complacent.

“Nalipay ta nga gipaminaw ang atong appeal pero we should not consider that as already a victory. I would be the first to admit nga we have not yet won against the virus,” Moreno said.

“Lamag lang ta karon because of the reduction sa virus pero the battle still rages and naa pa ang virus,” he added.

The city mayor also instructed the city’s Regulatory Compliance Board not to rush the relaxation of restrictions in the city, and to “proceed with caution.”

“Don’t get excited nga GCQ ta kay the virus is still here and it’s just a question of time, manakod na sad na siya kung magkompyansa ta,” Moreno said.
