KALIBO, Aklan–Starting today, October 29, shortened curfew hours from 12 midnight to 4 am will be in effect in Boracay.

The curfew adjustment in barangays Yapak, Manocmanoc, and Balabag due to the decreasing number of COVID-19 cases is seen to have a major impact on hotels, resorts, and restaurants on the island, encouraging tourists and residents to spend more time outdoors and boosting economic recovery by way of patronizing business establishments.

Meanwhile, in mainland Malay, as coronavirus restrictions ease, curfew hours will also be adjusted to 9 pm to 4 am from the previous 8 pm to 4 am.

Still, despite the easing up of restrictions, the Philippine National Police assured police visibility even as it appealed to the residents to abide by the curfew to avoid arrest.

Malay has three active cases as of October 28. Since the pandemic began, the town has registered 1,251 COVID-19 infections and 15 deaths.

The whole province of Aklan is under general community quarantine until October 31. (Boy Ryan Zabal/iNews-Aklan/Boracay Bureau)
