Newest quarantine classifications for next month will be announced before February 1, Malacañang said.
In a virtual presser Thursday, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said members of the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases will meet later to finalize the quarantine classifications.
“May meeting ang IATF today para maresolba ang mga nag-apela. Pagkatapos masasapinal ang rekomendasyon at dedesisyunan yan ni Presidente siyempre bago matapos ang buwan ng Enero,” according to Roque.
“Wala pong public address but it will be announced… Sigurado yan before the first of February,” he added.
The Palace official said that Cordillera Administrative Region and Region 11, which are both in “moderate risk” in terms of coronavirus bed utilization rate, are candidates for escalation of community quarantine.
