Iloilo City and Iloilo province shall remain under Alert Level 3 until February 28 following the recommendation of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, as announced by Presidential Spokesperson Karlo Nograles. Aklan and Boracay, on the other hand, shall be under Alert Level 2.
The whole Western Visayas is generally classified under Alert Level 3
due to the surge of active coronavirus cases in the area.
Alert Level 2 is the second lowest alert level classification. Certain establishments and activities are allowed to operate at 50% indoor and 70% outdoor capacity, as long as individuals involved are fully vaxxed. 
Meanwhile, under Alert Level 3, some establishments are allowed at 30% and 50% outdoor capacity, involving fully vaxxed individuals only. 
On a closer scope, the Iloilo province does not plan to appeal its Alert Level 3 classification, as Governor Arthur Defensor Jr. announced in a press conference. The governor also added that there is little significance between Alert Level 3 and Alert Level 2
alert level systems. As for the governor, what is necessary is the continued operations of establishments and the compliance of minimum public health protocols. 
These new alert level classifications are based on each local government unit’s cases.
Liquor ban and curfew policies are lifted in Iloilo City, under its Alert Level 3 status. Mayor Jerry Treñas lifting of these restrictions immediately after issuing Executive Order No. 016-2022. 
However, restrictions and prohibitions of selling liquor to minors are still in effect, along with curfew policies. Treñas instructed authorities and officers to have random inspections on establishments to implement the said policies effectively.
