List Of ECQ Checkpoints In Metro Manila

5 min. read By eCompareMo on

Amid the enhanced community quarantine, authorities have set up ECQ checkpoints all over Metro Manila. This way, only essential personnel and Authorized People Outside Residence (APOR) according to the guidelines set by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) can go out of their localities, if not their homes.

Checkpoints manned by different districts of the PNP-National Capital Region Police Office (PNP-NCRPO) exist mainly to control movement of the public and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Keep in mind that the purpose of enumerating these ECQ checkpoints in Metro Manila is not for anyone to circumvent them. Instead, use this as a guide to avoid trip delays due to road closures and whatnot. For health and safety concerns, we strongly advise you against going outside and only make trips to pick up essential supplies.

ECQ checkpoint guidelines and tips for motorists

The presence of uniformed personnel at Metro Manila checkpoints can be alarming to normal citizens. However, you can avoid inconveniences and make sure that everything goes smoothly. Simply keep in mind the following enhanced community quarantine checkpoint guidelines and tips.

1. Bring all the necessary documents with you at all times. These may include:

  • Barangay quarantine pass (for basic travels within the city/town)
  • ID/authorization pass issued by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on the Management of Infectious Diseases (for frontliners and essential personnel)
  • RapidPass QR code
  • Company ID/certificate of employment
  • Driver’s license

2. If you’re feeling ill or showing any COVID-19 symptoms, avoid any kind of travel for now and just stay home. Keep in mind that they do temperature checks and ask routine questions at ECQ checkpoints.

3. Wear personal protective equipment like face masks, face shields, and others.

4. Follow social distancing guidelines even when inside your car or onboard your motorcycle.

5. Be respectful and polite. Answer the questions asked by ECQ checkpoint personnel truthfully and calmly. State your purpose for driving politely.

6. As is the case with standard police checkpoints, you are not required to step out of the vehicle, open your glove box and trunk, have your items inspected, and demand you to submit to a physical or body search.

7. Avoid doing inter-city travels if you’re not considered an essential personnel.

8. If personnel at Metro Manila checkpoints deem that your travel purpose is invalid, they will ask you to turn your vehicle around and go back home. Do not escalate the situation. Keep in mind that ordinary citizens can only go out for basic supply runs and emergency purposes.

9. If you think violations have been committed during your encounter with ECQ checkpoint officers, you can call the IATF-Joint Task Force COVID Shield hotlines:
