In a recent press statement by Presidential Spokesperson Hardy Roque, he said that children aged 5 years old and above will now be allowed to go outdoors.
Areas under Modified General Community Quarantine (MGCQ) and General Community Quarantine (GCQ) can allow the children to visit certain places.
Enlisted are the allowed areas and activities for the children:
- Parks / playgrounds
- Biking and Hiring trails
- Outdoor Tourist Sites and Attractions
- Outdoor Dining Establishments
- Outdoor Non-Contact Sports Courts and Venues
However, kids are still not allowed to go out in some areas. GCQ areas with heightened restrictions should still hinder these children to go out.
On the other hand, even if certain areas are already allowed, there are still restrictions.
Enlisted are the restricted areas and activities for the children:
- Mixed-use Indoor or Outdoor buildings
- Malls and similar establishments
Nevertheless, please be reminded that unless it is a need and a must to go out, please stay in the comforts of your homes. And if going out is deemed necessary, please observe strict new-normal protocols.
