Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, Metro Manila Mayors have agreed to limit the movements of the unvaccinated individuals while the capital region is under Alert Level 3. According to Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Chairman Benhur Abalos, unvaccinated people in Metro Manila including the minors must stay at their house.

Unvaccinated residents will be allowed to go out from their houses for essential purposes like the buying of food supplies. According to the report, the establishments will also have to tighten their measures. The mall-goers and restaurant customers must be required to present their vaccination cards and IDs upon entry.

With regards to the employees who are not yet vaccinated, they will have to undergo an RT-PCR test every two (2) weeks and it is at their own expense. Those people and establishments that will go against the protocols will have to face the penalty of up to Php 50,000.00 and up to one (1) month of imprisonment.

Currently, the world is on the watch for the Omicron, the variant of COVID-19 that was first recorded in South Africa. It was reported to be a “heavily mutated” variant of the virus. Further studies and observation of its behavior are being conducted.
