Confused about these quarantine levels? You’re not alone!
Here’s an easy-to-understand chart to compare the four levels.
ECQ – Enhanced Community Quarantine
MECQ – Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine
GCQ – General Community Quarantine
MGCQ – Modified General Community Quarantine
More to remember;
ECQ is the highest level so it means it has the most strict regulations. No movement regardless of age and health status. While in MECQ and GCQ, there’s limited movement within the containment area or buffer zone you are located and in obtaining essential needs.
Essential workers (doctors, nurses, grocery personnel, etc.) are allowed to go out. Non-essential workers will only be allowed to go out of their homes if they have to purchase groceries and other necessities.
In MGCQ, the period is a transition or preparation for the “New Normal”. Socio-economic activities are permitted with certain Health guidelines.
Still puzzled? Just remember the two main categories – ECQ and GCQ. All these levels are focused to help flatten the curve of the pandemic. Following above guidelines will help us stay safe from Corona Virus and help our frontliners as they are getting overwhelmed.
