Under the “enhanced community quarantine” imposed on Luzon, the presence of uniformed personnel manning checkpoints and enforcing quarantine procedures will be heightened. Strict home quarantine is ordered for all households, public transportation is suspended, and provision for food and essential services is also regulated, said Malacañang.
