Holders of passes with odd numbers (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) can go out on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, while those with even numbers (2, 4, 6, 8, 0) can go out on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, anytime from 5 a.m to 6 p.m.
On Sunday, those with odd number passes can go out from 5 a.m. to 11 a.m. only, while those with even number passes will be allowed outside from 12 noon to 6 p.m.
