On February 24, Cebu City signed a new Executive Order ‘Oplan Kagawasan’ that eases almost all restrictions and just maintains the minimum public health standards like wearing of face masks and observing social distancing. This new order lifts the curfew (except for minors) and now allows kids and unvaccinated individuals in public and private establishments.
Mandaue City and Cebu Province also lifted the curfew hours city- and province-wide. Lapu-Lapu City is the lone city on the island of Cebu that has not yet lifted the curfew hours.
Starting on March 1, the Cebu Province will also allow public utility vehicles (PUVs) to operate at full capacity.
