Labella releases Executive Order No. 082 (EO 82) in effect during ECQ period until June 30
Cebu City was returned to the ECQ status fifteen (15) days from its General Community Quarantine (GCQ) status last June 1 due to an increase in new coronavirus cases and widespread community transmission of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), as well as with the recommendation of the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases Management. According to the IATF, Cebu City recorded a consistent spike of cases in less than seven days and a significant increase in critical care utilization compared to critical care capacity.
The recommendations of the IATF contained in Resolution No. 46-A were implemented and were approved by President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday night, June 15, 2020. The President, however, said that the new quarantine classifications could still be modified after his meeting with the business community.

Aside from escalating quarantine restrictions in Cebu City, Talisay City was also placed under the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ). President Rodrigo Duterte also approved the IATF recommendation to retain the General Community Quarantine (GCQ) in the entire Metro Manila.
