In case you missed it, face shields are no longer mandatory in Cebu City. Right after Metro Manila, Iloilo, and Davao – it’s about time for Cebu to also lift its face shield policy.
On Wednesday, in a press conference, acting mayor Mike Rama announced that residents of Cebu City are no longer required to wear face shields, according to the new directive, with the exception of wearing them in medical facilities and public transportations.
You no longer have to wear face shields when commuting in public transportation such as the jeepney as it is well-ventilated and in the open air.
Establishments are required to look into vaccine cards for customers/guests. In regards to the ones who haven’t been vaccinated yet, you may still walk into stores or restaurants, though it depends on the establishment if they require it.
Oh, and children may now go enter malls to spend the weekends’ mall activities with their family. How fun! As long as there are supervised by a full vaccinated adult – but please do look out for them as we’re still trying to keep them safe.
Mayor Rama also shared his thoughts that the mask didn’t serve much of a purpose, but rather, it is only a mere “compliance purpose.”
Although the Department of Health (DOH) has yet to confer with the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for further statement towards the lifting of face shield policy among local governments.
