The ECQ will be extended until April 30, 2020.

Negros Occidental Eugenio Lacson, in his executive order 20-20-A, said that the extension was done with the recommendation of the Provincial Health Office as a disease-prevention measure to limit the transmission of COVID-19 in the province.

All other conditions, provisions, and restrictions under the present ECQ apply, including the mandatory wearing of face masks. The validity of all ECQ passes is also extended.

Meanwhile, Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia has also signed a similar E.O. in sync with that of the province.

He cited that the city could not be complacent in the face of an ongoing threat of the pandemic, since local transmission is still a “grave and present threat”.

The E.O. said the city could not afford to lose its “gains and momentum” in controlling the virus.
