LIST: Curfew hours, restrictions in Metro Manila due to COVID-19

As COVID-19 cases in the country continue to surge, local governments are imposing stricter rules to curb the spread of infections.

In a report published on Wednesday, March 17, Octa Research said the National Capital Region (NCR) is already experiencing a serious surge in cases. They added that localized lockdowns may work against "variant-driven surges, but they are more effective in tandem with expanded testing, contact tracing, and supported isolation."

On Tuesday, March 16, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority announced that all 17 local government units comprising NCR signed a resolution imposing curfew hours and banning minors from going outside. 

Here's a quick list of curfew hours, restrictions, and liquor bans in all cities and municipalities in Metro Manila, arranged in alphabetical order.
