The MMC, composed of the 17 LGUs of Metro Manila, is the policy-making body of the MMDA.

Meanwhile, authorized persons outside residence (APOR) are still exempted from the curfew provided they show proof of identification or certificate of employment to authorities.

Metro Manila, as part of the NCR Plus bubble, has been in enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), with curfew hours of 6 pm to 5 am.
