MANILA, Philippines — Malacañang on Friday released the full list of community quarantine classifications for the month of November. 

In a recorded address aired Tuesday morning, President Rodrigo Duterte announced that Metro Manila along with a number of other areas would remain under a general community quarantine. 

However, a memo from Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea revealed that the rest of the country would stay under a more relaxed modified GCQ for the whole of next month. 

Here is the full list of areas under GCQ provided by the Palace: 

  • Luzon: 
    • All highly urbanized centers (HUCs) of the National Capital Region and the Municipality in Pateros
    • Batangas
  • Visayas: 
    • Iloilo City 
    • Bacolod City 
    • Tacloban City 
  • Mindanao: 
    • Iligan City 
    • Lanao del Sur 

The rest of the country will remain under MGCQ until end-November, Malacañang said.

It has been 229 days since parts of the country were first placed under lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic — the longest community quarantine period in the world.
