Meanwhile, those who fail to wear a face mask amid the coronavirus quarantine would face a penalty depending on the ordinance of the province he/she has been caught.

Based on an article from ABS-CBN, Eleazar stated:

Humihingi kami ng tulong sa force multipliers gaya ng LGUs at mga barangay tanod na nagsusulong na maipatupad ang tungkulin na ito na puwedeng makatulong sa amin na maiwasan ang unnecessary movement

Previously, back-riding on motorcycles was not allowed to prevent the further spread of the virus. However, the COVID task force recently allowed this if you could prove that you are a married couple or live-in partners.

Because of this, netizens and drivers have made jokes about the decisions of those in charge.
