MANILA, Dec 1 (Mabuhay) — After almost nine months in quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic, minors may now go malling as long as they are accompanied by their parents, Interior and Local Government Secretary Eduardo Ano said.

“Para na rin po sa kapaskuhan ay dun sa ipinag-utos natin na pwede ng gradual expansion ng age group para makalabas, ang mga minors, basta accompanied ng mga magulang ay papayagang makalabas at makapunta sa malls,” he said in a televised briefing Monday night.

“Ito ay pagtitibayin sa mga ordinansa ng ating mga mayors dun sa lugar ng GCQ,” he added.

In the same briefing led by President Rodrigo Duterte, it was also announced that the National Capital Region, Batangas, Iloilo City, Tacloban City, Lanao del Sur, Iligan and Davao City will remain under general community quarantine from December 1 to 31 this year.

The rest of the country will be under the more relaxed modified general community quarantine.

Earlier, reports said children 15 years and below were recommended to be allowed outdoors as long as they are accompanied by an adult. (MNS)
