In PH, classes have yet to return to its normal mode. Schools are currently educating students through a blended learning – with the use of modules and online classes.

It is now a protocol that everyone must wear a face mask and practice social distancing when going outdoors. Many businesses currently do not implement full workforce operation.

Currently, the entire Philippines is still under community quarantine measures. Metro Manila is now under General Community Quarantine (GCQ) thus there are still several limitations in the pursuit to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Every month, there is an announcement of new quarantine measures to be implemented in the different areas in the Philippines. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the COVID-19 IATF already has a suggestion for the community quarantine measure in the entire PH this March.

According to the report, the COVID-19 IATF recommends the implementation of a Modified General Community Quarantine (MGCQ) in the entire PH this March. It is a looser quarantine measure.

Furthermore, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Secretary Ramon Lopez said that the reopening of the economy of the country can no longer wait until the start of the vaccination programs.
