Albay Governor Al Francis Bichara on Monday, June 7, ordered all towns and cities of Albay Province under General Community Quarantine (GCQ).
Only two towns, Jovellar and Rapu-Rapu, are exempted from the latest order.
Last March 31, 2021, Governor Bichara placed Legazpi City and Daraga under GCQ owing to covid-19 spike.
But, the Covid-19 spike continued to increase, alarming the health sector.
After consulting with health officials, Bicol IATF-, and concerned stakeholders, the Governor amended his previous order and expanded the coverage to all Albay towns and cities, except Jovellar and Rapu-Rapu.
Bichara warned LGU executives to implement strictly the mandated health protocols and guidelines, or face administrative and appropriate cases.
