Negros Occidental still under curfew

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

Curfew hours will remain in Negros Occidental, but will be shortened, declared Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson yesterday.

The retention and shortening of curfew hours in the province came after Lacson consulted the 31 mayors, with majority of them going for it.

Iloilo City and other local government units in various areas of the country had lifted curfew hours in their respective areas, following improvement of their anti-COVID-19 campaign and lessening in number of active cases.

Lacson said he is proposing a new schedule of curfew hours, which will start from 12 midnight to 4 a.m. the next day, which will cover adults.

But he added that curfew hours for minors will be at 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.

Lacson said he expects to issue an executive order retaining curfew hours within the province this week.

The highly-urbanized Bacolod City has yet to announce if it would also lift or retain the curfew hours presently being observed from 10 p.m. to 4 am the next day.*
