Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Gen. Archie Francisco Gamboa encouraged local government units (LGUs) to prepare their exit plans for the lifting of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).
He said the PNP was formulating its own exit plan.
He admitted that there would be challenges in the implementation of measures in areas under General Community Quarantine (GCQ).
“So, magbabago na talaga (there will really be changes) that’s why the national headquarters is preparing for new strategies to the new normal,” Gamboa bared.
He said the PNP action plan would strategize police operations and administration in response to the extension of the ECQ in Metro Manila, Central Luzon, Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon and other high-risk areas.
“We strongly encourage everyone to remain mindful of minimum standards on physical or social distancing, most especially those areas under GCQ with relaxed quarantine measures and influx of people due to easing of ECQ protocol in some areas,” Gamboa explained. DARWIN PESCO
