Modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) guidelines are back in effect as of today, August 4. Certain businesses are still allowed to continue operations under MECQ, but some government agencies must temporarily suspend operations once again in compliance with the stricter quarantine protocols.

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) is one of those agencies, and it has confirmed that all of its branches located in Metro Manila, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, and Rizal will be closed until August 18. If you were planning to drop by an LTO office within the next couple of weeks, you now have to reschedule.

This advisory comes after the LTO announced that the registration validity of certain vehicles has been extended further to September 30—read more on that here. You can also check out the LTO’s official Facebook post below:

The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) is another agency that has suspended its operations in MECQ areas until August 18. It also reminded PUV drivers that the ban on public transport is back in effect during this time. You can refer to the official announcement from the LTFRB’s Facebook page below:

As previously mentioned, all modes of public transportation will not be allowed to operate during this MECQ period. Motorists, on the other hand, must be advised that the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority’s number-coding scheme shall remain suspended, and that quarantine passes will be required when driving out.

Authorized persons outside residence (APORs) will still be allowed to go out under MECQ as usual, while non-essential workers must remain indoors—you can click here to see the full list of APORs.
