Governor Gwendolyn Garcia said that senior citizens aged 65 and above should only be allowed out of their homes for medical treatments.

“They will also be on a 24-hour curfew, except those who need to go to a medical facility,” Garcia said. (

Everyone in Cebu is required to wear identification cards (IDs) to determine whether or not they are members of the two sectors ordered to stay home.
