BAGUIO City and the rest of the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) will remain under general community quarantine (GCQ) until the end of April contrary to unverified reports the region will be reverted back to enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).
In Executive Order (EO) 47, series of 2021, released by Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong over the weekend, the city will remain under GCQ.
