Baguio City plans “new normal”
A transition to a new way of living is being planned in Baguio City. According to Mayor Benjie Magalong, the transition is being drafted along with inputs from various sectors. After the ECQ, Magalong said that the first to resume will be construction operations, followed by the transport sectors. He also assured that while taking small steps into a new life, Baguio will continuously close its borders and schools until May 31, 2020.
The tourism, hotel, and restaurant sectors will be addressed next in cooperation with the Tourism and Promotions Board, and restaurants and other dining spots will be opened but with strict precautionary guidelines. The city management committee and department heads have already discussed an action plan for Baguio City’s economic recovery and will implement it if there will be no enhanced community quarantine extension after April 30. 
Ilocos Norte remains under total lockdown
Ilocos Norte Governor Matthew Marcos Manotoc reiterated that the province will remain under total lockdown while the enhanced community quarantine is in effect. The governor mentioned that what’s important is that there should be no unnecessary entry of individuals from outside the province. Half of Ilocos Norte’s towns have finished establishing their quarantine facilities, and the Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte (PGIN) is currently establishing additional isolation quarters.
