Province of Benguet

Endorsement for Reclassification of Benguet to a Lower Community Quarantine Status

Governor Dr. Melchor Daguines Diclas endorses to Secretary Francisco Duque III the resolution issued by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan requesting for the reclassification of Benguet to a lower community quarantine status from its current Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) status which will lapse on June 15, 2021. Later in May, it can be recalled that Governor Diclas sent a request letter to the National IATF requesting the same. The province, meanwhile, has been strengthening its campaign on strict implementation of preventive measures against CoVID-19 leading to the continuous decrease of confirmed positive cases.
