Acting Mayor Michael Rama is pushing for an extension of general community quarantine (GCQ) in Cebu City for another month.

This is to strengthen the city’s Covid-19 vaccination campaign further, according to Rama.

Cebu City is presently under GCQ until September 30. (

Rama, however, said that there is a need to discuss the city’s next steps with different sectors so that proper assessment can be made.

“Because if there is a need for us to really see beyond, why are we going to be in a hurry? We don’t want to go back to a stricter quarantine status. It’s tiresome,” the Cebuano official added.

Data from the Emergency Operations Center showed that the active Covid-19 cases in Cebu City are down to 876, as of September 26.

The city also saw successive Covid-19 positivity rates lower than the five percent threshold of the World Health Organization in recent days.
