Local government officials of Vigan City announced the extension of the implementation of Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine until June 19.

On May 22, the city was placed by Ilocos Sur Governor Ryan Singson under a two-week MECQ after a “rapid increase in the number of COVID-19 cases” was recorded by health authorities.

Vigan City Mayor Juan Carlo Medina expressed that local health officials and COVID-19 task force has recommended to the provincial government the extension of MECQ as the implementation of “swift and concerted actions” were still needed to protect local residents.
