“Kini nga ECQ sa province of Cebu will go on until further notice.”- Gov. Garcia
This is the answer of the Cebu Provincial Governor Gwen Garcia on the issue of the lifting of enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) during her live update last Saturday, April 11.
The successive days of negative test results on the COVID tests conducted here in Cebu have prompted the people to ask this question along with the ECQ’s possible extensions.
She clarified that no specific date on the end of ECQ was indicated in the Executive Order 5-O she had issued.
