NBI suspends clearance processing service
After President Duterte placed Metro Manila and nearby provinces under modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ), the National Bureau of Investigation announced on Monday that it was suspending its clearance services from August 4 to August 18.
President Duterte on late Sunday night placed Metro Manila, Cavite, Laguna, Rizal, and Bulacan on MECQ following the recent surge in COVID-19 cases.
The MECQ will last from August 4 to 18. Under MECQ trains, buses, jeepneys, taxis, ride-hailing services, tricycles are not allowed to operate. Manufacturing plants and other establishments are allowed to operate only with half their capacity.
Duterte revived the MECQ after healthcare workers’ groups called for a timeout to give exhausted frontline medical personnel a respite.
