The government has allowed people aged 10 to 65 in areas under modified general community quarantine (MGCQ), to leave their homes beginning February 1, Malacañang announced Friday.
“Pupwede na pong lumabas ang mga batang nasa edad na 10 taong gulang at senior citizens na hanggang 65 years old,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a video aired on state-run PTV-4.
Roque, however, said those below 10 years old and over 65 years of age must remain in their residence “at all times.”
“Local government units, on the other hand, are enjoined to adopt the same relaxation of age-restrictions for areas under General Community Quarantine,” he added.
Only persons aged 15 to 65 years were previously allowed to go out.
