The lockdown will begin at 5 a.m. (5 p.m. ET) on July 16 and end on July 29 at 11:50 p.m., Toby Tiangco said on Facebook.
"Residents will have a scheduled day to go out of the house and shop for groceries, medicine and other needs. Only those holding a home quarantine pass will be allowed to leave their homes. Essential workers are allowed to go to work, but no mass gatherings will be permitted," he added.
Navotas had a total of 981 confirmed cases on Monday, Tiangco wrote. The city has a population of 249,463, according to the city government’s website.
“Due to the continuous increase of our patients, our community isolation facilities have been filled ... even some hospitals in Metro Manila have reached full capacity,” Tiangco said. “We are hoping that through lockdown, we can slow the increase of cases in our city.”
