THE implementation of the Alert Levels System, which has been piloted in the National Capital Region (NCR), was extended by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) to selected areas outside the NCR starting October 20 until October 31, 2021, said Presidential Spokesperson Secretary Harry Roque Jr.
“Nasa Alert Level 4 po ang Negros Oriental at Davao Occidental. Nasa Alert Level 3 po ang Cavite, Laguna, Rizal, Siquijor, Davao City, at Davao del Norte. Habang nasa Alert Level 2 naman po ang Batangas, Quezon Province, Lucena City, Bohol, Cebu City, Lapu-Lapu City, Mandaue City, Cebu Province, Davao de Oro, Davao del Sur, at Davao Oriental,” said Secretary Roque in a press briefing on October 19, 2021.
The Palace and concurrent IATF spokesperson said that once the evaluation of the Alert Levels System shows that it is more effective than the current community quarantine classifications, then it will be implemented nationwide. “Ilang mga rehiyon pa lang ang na-include natin doon sa pilot implementation. We are expanding our pilot implementation of the Alert Levels System habang binubusisi pa talaga yung resulta ng initial pilot,” said Secretary Roque.
