Getting Facials Banned After GCQ On June 1 Says Roque
GETTING FACIALS BANNED AFTER GCQ – Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque announced that people shouldn’t be too excited as Manila transitions into a general community quarantine on June 1.
After two months in lockdown, the government has decided to ease restrictions on the Metro. As such, businesses such as salons have been allowed to continue to run operations.
However, Roque stated not to get too excited as only hair cuts would be allowed come Monday. According to an article from ABS-CBN, Roque stated:
Huwag po kayo masyadong ma-excite dahil limitado po ang mga barbero at mga salon sa paggugupit. Wala pa ring facial, wala pa ring sa kuko, wala pa ring pagtanggal ng mga…eyebrows. Hanggang gupit lang tayo
Moreover, under the Resolution No.41 of the Inter-agency Task Force on COVID-19, parlors, and salons are only allowed to operate at 30 percent capacity. Additionally, these establishments are allowed to continue operations on June 7.
As per the article, the IATF said that after two weeks, beauty establishments could continue to work at 50 percent capacity. Next, after three weeks, these businesses would be allowed to operate completely.
However, some groups have voiced concerns regarding the governments plan to ease the quarantine. Lawmakers such as Senator Risa Hontiveros also expressed that the transition risks the lives of the residents.
This easing of the lockdown may expose thousands of Metro Manila workers and residents to a new wave of community transmission that will definitely overwhelm our already-embattled health system
Additionally, the DOH had also used a new system of recording COVID-19 cases which added unnecessary confusion to the masses.
