Davao City makes public draft EO for GCQ enforcement


The Davao City government released Thursday, May 14, the draft executive order, which provides for a general community quarantine (GCQ) in the city starting May 16.

The local government said the draft was made public “for the preparation purposes of Davao City residents.”

Mayor Sara Duterte, in an interview with the Davao City Disaster Radio (DCDR) Wednesday, May 13, said the measures under new directive would conform to the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) Omnibus Guidelines Section 3 on the Implementation of Community Quarantine in the Philippines, and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Memorandum Circular 20-22.

“Kung dili ta mahinayon sa GCQ, dili nato officially i-release ang atoang executive order (If we will not shift to GCQ, we will not officially release the executive order),” she said.

The mayor said the guidelines under IATF and the DTI memorandum on reopening of some the establishments would be followed.
