Senator Grace Poe on Tuesday warned that the easing of quarantine protocols should not lead to carelessness especially among mall administrators, who still need to ensure the safety of their patrons, especially children.
“As government plans to relax quarantine restrictions on minors, we trust that the government and mall authorities will be rigorous in implementing measures to ensure that safety protocols are observed,” she said.
“Children’s lives have been turned upside down by this pandemic. Living up to the routine inside the home for months has been a real challenge for them,” Poe said.
“But we are not over the hump yet in the battle against Covid-19 until we find the most effective vaccine,” she noted.
“The government remains in a hunt for adequate funds to give the free shots at least to the most vulnerable sectors and needy segment of the population, and make them available at reasonable rates to those who can afford,” Poe said.
