On May 13, the Inter Agency Task Force of the Philippine Government announces that Metro Manila will be in Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine from May 16, 2020. We are waiting for Taguig City to announce the rules.
On April 23, the Philippine President announced the extension of the Enhanced Community Quarantine in Metro Manila and several provinces in Luzon until May 15, 2020.
We compile below announcements made by Taguig City Hall, Barangay Fort Bonifacio, BGC authorities and national government that are of particular relevance to residents of Bonifacio Global City and McKinley West, as opposed to general information applicable to a larger population, in chronological order, with the latest first.
Give them your feedback: Social media is one of the means for the authorities to gauge public sentiments. If you have views on the COVID-19 measures taken so far, make yourself heard by commenting on the Facebook pages of Taguig City Hall and Barangay Fort Bonifacio.

Drive through COVID-19 centers in Taguig City announced. Tests done in 23 barangays. It would be interesting to see the test results, since before that, all tests in Taguig City were done only in St Luke's Medical Center in BGC.
It would be interesting to see how the numbers change after the tests done in barangays outside Fort Bonifacio are in. Without testing on a broader geographical area, the number of confirmed cases may biase towards the place where testing is available.
