Albay Governor Al Francis Bichara has placed all cities and municipalities in the province, except Jovellar and Rapu-Rapu, under general community quarantine.

“All cities and municipalities, except the Municipalities of Jovellar and Rapu-Rapu, are placed under the General Community Quarantine (GCQ) until June 15, 2021, as agreed between the Bicol Inter-Agency Task Force and the Local Chief Executives in the Province,” Bichara’s order read.

In his EO, Bichara directed all local government units placed under the GCQ to observe and strictly follow the health protocols under the latest Omnibus Guidelines with amendments as of May 20, 2021 issued by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases corresponding to the General Community Quarantine category.

“Failure to comply with the said directive shall be a ground for the filing of appropriate cases pursuant to Republic Act No. 11332 and other pertinent laws applicable,” the order read.

The said EO amended the earlier order placing Daraga and Legazpi under GCQ.

This order took effect immediately upon signing on June 7.
