Yap extends MGCQ in Bohol until July 31


The Province of Bohol will remain under the modified general community quarantine status (MGCQ).

Governor Arthur Yap has signed Executive Order No. (EO) 38, extending the MGCQ status of the province until July 31.

He also cited the present Covid-19 situation in Cebu province and Cebu City as factors in his decision to extend Bohol’s quarantine status.

“There are still a considerable number of active Covid-19 cases within the Province of Bohol and the neighboring Cebu province and Cebu City continue to exhibit an increasing number of Covid-19 cases which necessitate the extension of the Modified General Community Quarantine in the province,” the EO 38 read.
