LIST: Where to Buy Food and Groceries in Luzon

Last Updated on

The rising confirmed cases of SARS-COV-2 in the Philippines has led mayors of cities in Metro Manila to implement curfew hours and tighter restrictions to prevent the further spreading of the virus and the rising toll of deaths.

Similarly, private establishments such as malls have implemented new operating hours as a response to the need to reduce the number of mass gatherings that is fertile ground for the virus to spread.
