Metro Manila LGUs To Release List of Areas Where Kids Are Allowed

Children 5 Years Old & Up in Metro Manila Allowed to Go Out

METRO MANILA LGUs – The local governments in Metro Manila will release the list of areas where kids five (5) years old and up are allowed.

The whole Philippines remains under community quarantine measures amid the ongoing fight against the spread of COVID-19. Currently, Metro Manila which was considered as the epicenter of the virus is under General Community Quarantine (GCQ) with some restrictions.

For more than a year, children were not allowed to go outdoors as part of the protocols to fight the spread of coronavirus. The same thing was implemented to the senior citizens unless for very essential reasons. Students are educated through blended learning – via modules and online classes.

Recently, the national inter-agency task force against COVID-19 released an advisory allowing children five (5) years old and up to go out from their houses. The changes include kids in areas under GCQ and Modified GCQ or MGCQ.

According to Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Chairman Benhur Abalos, the said suggestion from the national IATF passed the experts and the Department of Health (DOH). Based on the report, he added that children also need to go out.

The Metro Manila LGUs will release the list of areas wherein children five (5) years old and up are allowed. Reportedly, there are members of the police and the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) roaming in Baywalk to remind the people about the minimum health standards.

Currently, the national government is in the process of vaccinating the people in the pursuit to get 70 million people vaccinated for population protection against COVID-19. However, some cities in Metro Manila are lagging on the 1st dose vaccination due to limited supply of the vaccines now.
