The national government on Sunday placed the National Capital Region and four nearby provinces under a stricter general community quarantine in the National Capital Region in a bid to reduce public movement amid the surge in COVID-19 cases in the country.

The stricter GCQ only allows limited outdoor dine-in and food delivery and take out.

In view of this, some food couriers are now offering discounts and free delivery promos to clients as the public stay home amid the new quarantine rules.
